    Helping a friend convert to tfp

    Friend has a in ground pool vinyl lined pool....water is very cloudy white...pool store has been telling them to add this and that and to stop back in a couple days and go from there....went there this a.m. with my k2006 and....
    Fc=2.5
    Cc=0
    Ph=8.0 was almost off chart
    Ta=130
    Cya=0
    Did the cya test 2 times because i expected it to be high...they have been useing granular clorine out of a 5gal bucket this year and the bucket is about empty....she leaves it sitting out at the pool in the sun....will this degrade the clorine in the bucket ? And why is there not any cya.... i thought with useing the granular that there wouldve been some cya in there...or has this been totaly been robed of everything from being stored outside in the sun....
    There stocked on liquid clorine as of now and throwing away the bucket....going back later today to check the #s again
    Cya being added right now and ph being adjusted with acid.

    That bucket was probably cal-hypo. That is stabilized with calcium not CYA. you might want to check their ch level.

    Yes, that sounds like it might be very high calcium level.

    Im going back to there house in a couple hours. ...looks like if the ch is off the chart they need to replace some of the water according to pool math...so i should have a reading of 350 or lower ?
