Just opened up my pool a couple of days ago and noticed it was green so I shocked it kill the algae. Also, using my TFT 100 test kit recorded a CYA in excess of 100. Used the drain/fill method to reduce the CYA. Now that the pool is up and running (20 hours) the water is still cloudy - realize it needs to run for several day to clear it up.
Pool is fiberglass and is 10K gallons.
Plan to use the BBB method, previously used 3" tabs (Trichloro) + Borax and baking soda.
The the test results from today are:
Temp 66 F
My initial estimate for the amount of water replaced to reduce the CYA was 50 so I guess the initial reading was much higher than 100 as indicated from my current test.
My question is - where do I begin?
Should I try to reduce the CYA and then adjust the FC and pH or is the CYA good enough for now?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
BTW, TFP is a great resource for pool management and the pool store method seems contradicting in many ways - store just wants to sell chemicals.
