For the past season and a half of using TFP things have been wonderful - thank you! Went away on 7/16 and the water was perfect (tested before we left) and am using the chlorine pucks so I loaded the automatic chlorinator and asked the house sitter to just keep an eye on the water and let me know if anything changed. To my surprise, came home on 7/21 to a green pool!
Since then it has rained a lot daily - yesterday was our first non-rain day however, I was testing the water 7/21 - 7/26. The FC was low - around 2 so I added chlorine until I was above shock levels and fear now I've taken it too far!
Here are today's readings:
pH 8.2 (using TF100 test kit 8.2 is highest # - added 23 oz of 31.45% muriatic acid yesterday - still 8.2 today - will add more acid)
CH 120 (tested just in case - have vinyl lined pool)
The water is no longer green but very cloudy. I've been vacuuming (to waste) and back washing daily. Haven't had to add any additional water as we've had a lot of rain. Other than reducing the chlorine level and pH is there anything else I can do? The pump is running 24/7.
Thanks for your help!
