I have an Easy Set 10 X 30 Intex pool. Just finally got it successfully set up last weekend after a couple of tries at the leveling thing.
Shortly after filling it I came home one day to find yellow cloudy water. Sorry for not keeping a complete diary of the week but here goes. I have been adding about 1/2 cup of bleach at night. One day last week I decided not to add any bleach, wondering if I might have too much bleach in there. After one day, it didn't make a difference. I think that was Thursday.
So that night I threw in a 1/2 cup of bleach. The next morning I decided to throw in another 1/2 cup of bleach before sunrise. Two hours later when I left for work my jaw dropped when I went outside. I no longer had yellow cloudy water. I had white cloudy water. So I thought I was on my way. However I'm still dealing with white cloudy water. I clean out the filter every morning and I have been running the pump overnight.
For the past couple of days, my readings have been
TC and Total Bromine: 0
Ph: 7.8 to 8.4
TA: 80 to 120
So it seems like I need to add that extra 1/2 cup of bleach in the morning? Thought I would make sure I'm on the right track before I got too far into this. I also have more bugs in the pool in the morning than seems like I've had, if that means anything. I think it means I need to mow the lawn. We've had some short afternoon rainstorms, typical of summer but mostly sunny days.
