I'm new to posting on this forum, but at this point, I feel like I have to try everything. So we opened our pool late June (I know, pretty late). The pool was in pretty good shape when opened, we added the usual chemicals and now the pool is looking beautiful. It is crystal clear, there is no little to no chlorine odor, it looks great. That is, until you see the test results...
Hardness - 250
TC - 0
FC - 0
pH - 6.8
Alkalinity - 120
Stabilizer - 50
We added about 30 pounds of shock into the pool, twice having added 8 bags(lbs) at once. The most recent being last night. This morning I tested the water and the chlorine level was at 1. And now, at around 5:30 pm, it is back down to 0 again. I added in algaecide recently, about 2/3 of a quart, and nothing seems to be improving chlorine-wise.
Any help will be much appreciated.
