We open the pool a few weeks ago and had a bad algae issue, shock the pool and still could not clear it up, went to local pool store and they suggested floc and algacide. IT seem to clear up the green issue and now i have cloudy blue water and can not see the bottom.
I usually used the BBB method but my wife took care of the pool this year and now I am back trying to clear it up. I put in 4 gallons of bleach and box of borax last night and here are my numbers. It seems that my FC is 0 and not moving.
Tot. chlorine 10
Free chlorine 0 !!
tot alkalinity 85
adj. total alkalinity 69
tot hardness 48
The pool store told me I have chlorine block!!! I now there is no such thing but they suggested i drain 2 feet of water or add chem out(not doing), or 27 bags of shock!!
I purchase 8 gallons of bleach and was going to dump all of it in. I been vacuuming to waste once a day and 24/7 filtering.
what should be my next steps?
