First off, I'd like to thank CJ for all of his excellent advice in my last thread. His patience with me and my meltdowns is that of no mere mortal.
So at this point, I've drained the pool to a ft and refilled. I have my pump going. I also have my new pool measurement of 21ft diameter and 4ft deep (haven't done the math yet on gallon size, but I will once I find that calculator again). So that probably explains why things went pear shaped last time.
But hey, after the refill we are now dealing with a greenish blue pool instead of just a green one, so...progress?
So what comes next? I'm assuming:
1. Let the pump run for a while.
2. Do all the tests and get our numbers.
Then I can determine the amount of stabilizer + bleach I need to continue to slam?
