I have been at this for weeks, so I figure it's time to get you involved. Let me just give you the latest by started with test results.
12,000 gal above ground pool with a SWG
FC - 16 ppm
CC - 0
PH - 7.6................but I just put a little shot of muriatic acid in so that should could down a bit.
TA - 150
CYA - 37
Ok, I shocked the pool for more than a week by keeping it at 16 ppm on FC and through checking the pool twice a day. It turned from green to blue, but was still so cloudy that you couldn't see more than 2 ft deep. At this point just before sunset I checked the Chlorine levels while the SWG still had an hour or so left on the meter. The next morning it had only lost .5 ppm, so I thought that I was done. I backed off of the chlorine and over the process of 2 days and with a drop to 9ppm FC, the pool turned green again. So, I immediately started hitting it with bleach again and have been at 16ppm for 2 days with absolutely zero effect. I have been checking and adjusting every hour for 2 days now to make sure that there is no dip in FC, but there is no visible affect. Thinking to use algaecide, but everything on here seems negative against it. I went through 3 gallons of bleach yesterday keeping it at 16ppm and overall Ive had the chlorine levels high for weeks. Im not sure how to proceed to maximize my investment and advance the cause of a clear pool. Thanks in advance.
