Pump died over the winter and I let the pool go. Had a heavy algae build up (pool was green/black). Over the course of the last 3 weeks I've put in:
15# of CYA (in a sock through the skimmer)
30 bottles (182oz) 6% bleach
2 full bottles of clarifier
4# of "shock"
Today my numbers are:
FC - 0
CYA - 30 (first time it's registered AT ALL)
TA - 100
Water is still VERY cloudy and has what I assume is the dead algae (turned white) on the bottom.
Am I on the right track or do I need to "back up and punt"?
BTW, How often and for how long should I backwash the filter?
