Hello pool family,
So I have my pool dialed in very well but my friend who has an older pool is having an issue. His water is so cloudy that you cannot see a few feet down. I will post what his results are and maybe you can point us in the right direction. I think he will need to drain maybe 50% and refill to start but Ill let the pros chime in before I make these recommendations to him.
He DOES NOT have a SWG. His pool is roughly 14,400 gallons and uses a sand filter.
CC - .5
We put in 10 cups of 10% liquid chlorine which brought it up to FC 7.5/CC .5.
He does use those chlorine tablets that float in the pool which I understand puts more CYA in the pool. I think he may need to get rid of these right away.
I think his pH and TA are within reason but CYA and CH are possibly a bit to high, thoughts? Chlorine is way to low and for this reason I had them raise it up before I left their house. I will go back tomorrow and recheck.
