I don't know what to do at this specific point since I have NO chlorine in the pool this evening after doing this. Yesterday I realized I had Algea problem. I'm new so I kind of messed things up from the get-go with the SWG. I apparently was only running the pump and never turned on the SWG for a week! (Obviously too little too late to treat any kind of Algea.) Sooooo...I added a bunch of bleach yesterday afternoon and some borax and some baking soda last night (according to the Poolmath calculator). I added a couple cups of 8.25% bleach today.
Only the pump is running right now, no SWG, however it HAD been running non-stop for the past 2 days. The filter is clean/white. I kept switching them out and cleaning them.
Here are my results tonight:
Cya: 30-50 (even though I've never put ANY CYA or stabilizer in) I'm just learning about this stuff starting yesterday!!!!
I just don't know what to do TONIGHT, if anything. I don't want to guess and mess it up. The water is clear now, but the bottom of the pool is greenISH although it can't be brushed away or anything, almost like it is stained. I don't know.
I have all the stuff I need on hand I think: 8.25% bleach, baking soda, borax, pH down, and Chlorine stabilizer.
Thank you and God Bless this site!!!!
