I moved into a house that used to drain and scrub the pool every year and I decided to try to learn to clear a swamp with chemicals. I started yesterday. I'm using PoolTime 6 way test strips it looks like my chems are as fallows
Total hardness : 250
PH: 8.4? it's a bright magenta color
I've added 3 lbs of stabalizer in a sock this morning. I went through 2 gallons of 10% liquid chlorine yesterday and added 2 more today. The pool went from a dark green to a very light green white cloudy milky today. I know I'm going to have to adjust my PH next. What am I going to have to do to get my water clear?
