I have a friend with a new pool with cloudy water. I used my trusty TF 100 test kit to test her water with the following results:
FC - 0
TA - 40
PH - <6.8
CYA - 0
CH - 140
Her pool size is 18x30, 4 ft deep (AG with vinyl liner).
According to the Pool Calculator her water volume is approximately 14,100 gals.
Since her water is cloudy, i believe she needs to add some bleach ASAP to prevent Algae growth. She also needs to get some CYA in there, but that will take a while to dissolve.According to the Pool Calculator, she needs approximately 75oz of Stabilizer (40) and I suggested she put it in a sock and into the skimmer or tie it in front of one of her inlets until it is dissolved. I also suggested she not backwash for approximately 5-6 days. Any recommendations as to how much Bleach to add right now while waiting for the CYA to dissolve?
We also know her PH is too low as well as her TA
