I will apologize ahead of time for an incomplete set of numbers--I know it is frustrating. I am waiting on my order to arrive, so I am having to go with what I have.
Opened to a green pool two weeks ago. Have run about 15 bottles of 6% bleach through it and while the green is gone, I can't get it clear.
We changed the filter/motor out yesterday and got much better circulation, but awakened this morning to no visual better results. I backwashed this morning and did note a good bit of brown (rust colored) water coming from filter--that's a first so maybe the other motor wasn't clearing out the filter on backwash?
On Thursday, I hung 3# of CYA (before that it was <20). It had sorta formed a rock in the sock, so on Friday evening, I did a lot of shaking of the sock to loosen it up. It is mostly empty this morning.
I had four kids swimming all weekend. When they got out last night, we added 1.4 gallons of 6 % clorox.
Here are my numbers to the best of what I have:
On Saturday @ pool store:
Water temp is 83F
I can't test CC, ALK or CYA until order arrives (it's on it's way!). So, I'm running a little blind. I don't know how folks do without complete test kits!!
