New to pools / These are the results Leslie's gave me / Battling algae constantly
Chlorine=10 (normal should be 1-4) They also can only measure up to 10 max.
Calcium=790 (normal should be 200-400)
Cyanuric Acid= 90 (normal is between 30-99)
Alkalinity=190 (normal between 80-120)
pH=7.4 (normal is 7.2-7.8)
Total Dissolved Solids= 2500 (normal should be less than 2500)
Phosphates=1000 (normal is less than 100)
Leslie's has been selling me alot of:
Fresh n clear
I am brushing the algae that builds up in the pool almost every day. When I brush and filter it goes away, but it keeps building up again quick! Its getting exhausting. Leslies told me my chlorine is too high and to turn it down. I added the phosfree and Muriatic Acid, and the algae is still coming back with a vengeance. I dont know what to do next and just starting pool school here. Another person at the pool store suggested I use this site.
Any input is welcomed!
