I just wanted to say thank you all for getting me educated! Opened the pool to find a swamp, complete with swimming creatures, and algae all over the walls. and thanks to this site, four days later, my water is sparkling! Now if only it was warm! 64 degrees! Put my feet in and I think I have frost bite!!
FC 5 (holding steady since this morning)
pH 8 (got a little overly excited about the borax)
cya 0 (when tested yesterday, but have since added a bunch, waiting to test)
Thank you so much! Could never have done this without the information on this site!
