    Green pool. Need some advice.

    Fc 9.2
    Cc .6
    Ph 7.2
    Alk 80
    Cya 90

    Soo I know your gonna shun me but I do use the tablets with an auto feeder. My pool is green and it almost went away then came back. I put half gallon of liquid clorine I think it's 12 percent. My auto feeder is turned off. Just need a little help getting this fixed. I personally think my Cya is to high and need to dump some water but that's where the pros come in hehe.

    You CYA is high - do to the use of tabs in the auto feeder. You will probably need to drain some water and do a SLAM.

    Your test results are missing the FC and CH results. What test kit are you using? Are you familiar with the Chlorine / CYA Chart?

    OK, if you have FAS/DPD then you are set to go with a SLAM to kill the algae. Follow this process, SLAM

    You can use Pool Math to calculate how much water to replace. You may want to shoot for a CYA of 40.

    Regular bleach from Walmart (8.25%) or chlorinating liquid (10%). You can even find 12.5% chlorine at various places. Be sure to check the dates as chlorine degrades over time. Here's a date code example: 16180 -- this indicated the 180th day of 2016 (near the end of June 2016).
