I did an Ascorbic Acid treatment a couple of weeks ago. Then Jack's Magic. After many bumps in the road I finally finished. Well, after about a week.....a stain started to come back. But it was a different stain. It had more of light black color. Not algae. Tested with Vit C tabs and stain came off. I then started to add Ascorbic Acid again. Chlorine was around 3 but I decided to try anyway. Some of it came off (where I was able to apply right over). Before I knew it, I had used the whole two pounds. Really wasted it since I had not dropped my chlorine. So, I have been brushing it and trying to drop chlorine.
Before I started to drop chlorine I put the Polyquat 60 in it. Today I wanted to start the Ascorbic Acid again since chlorine is now zero. However, when I went out this morning the pool was cloudy. We had a very hard rain late yesterday afternoon(not sure if that matters). Is it safe to try the Ascorbic Acid treatment with the pool cloudy? It's not a bad color just a little cloudy. I tested the water this morning.
Chlorine - 0. FC ,TC, CC
PH - about 7.3(color was between 7.2 and 7.5- took one drop of acid demand to go to 7.2)
