I just went out and bought the complete test kit from Leslies Pool and tested my water. Let me start by saying I am completely clueless as to what I am doing. I am in desperate need of this forums expertise. I have been reading as much as I can on here trying to learn. I started out with my pool looking very much like the Dismal Swamp I live near. After we removed at least a foot of leaves and muck I started trying to clear the water. I have gone from blackish green to a light blue cloud and cannot seem to progress any further. Not to mention it has been very expensive. I would like to try the BBB method but I don't even know how to begin. I am listing the numbers I got about an hour ago. Please note that I am showing 0 FC thanks to hurricane Bill which skirted the coast last night and dumped about 5 in. of rain. Any help anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated.
