Here are my numbers from this morning:
I'm struggling to get the CC down. I drained a foot of water from the pool and replaced the water with tap water and then I SLAMed the pool for 5 days straight using 8.25% liquid bleach by raising the FC to over 30 twice daily and brushing twice daily. I added DE to the sand filter too. YES, I did not SLAM on Friday. Unfortunately that thing that pays the bills, work, prohibited any pool time. Yesterday, the hubby swam to the bottom. The water was fine and did not burn his eyes until he got about a hand's width from the bottom right over the main drain. It seems that whatever is lurking in the pool is just in the very bottom. Any ideas? Is CC heavier? The pool water is crystal clear. However, there is a sand like substance on the bottom of the deep end. It's very dry here and I did cut grass yesterday, so I suspect some is sand.
Here's my plan:
1. Vacuum on waste today to get all residue off bottom.
2. Refill with tap water. BTW- My tap has CH in it too. CH of tap is 200.
3. Add 2 bags of salt.
4. Retest and SLAM again.
