When I drained the pool down, the water seemed much cloudier, cloudier than I think can be attributed to removal of the water... I left the filter running through most of the drain/refill (diverter valve set to DRAIN only - no SKIM). Right after refilling, when I brushed the walls/floor, white 'dusty' clouds appeared... never seen this before. Maybe b/c my pool water is normally polished by the DE filter, and this water straight from the city is not as clean? Anyway, after running the filter for another 3 hours this morning, the cloudiness while brushing is practically gone. The overall water clarity is slightly worse than before, but I expect the filter to catch up by the end of the day.
Here are the test results after the refill, hot off the press:
So, my question is what should I bring the FC up to? Pool Calculator says that I can add 280 oz. of 6% bleach to bring my FC up to 6 (target according to the TFP Chlorine/CYA Chart). Any need to bring it higher than that as there was some algae present prior to the refill? I've it off the walls, maybe the minor cloudiness is from algae?
I think I might add some muriatic acid as well to get the pH to 7.5 or so.
Please advise on what I should do, and how to do it.
Probably not helpful, but here are the test results from my tap water:
CYA 0 (waste of regents, wasn't thinking at least my gf got to see how it works! )
By the way, this is kind of a continuation from another post, found URL here. I figured I might as well have a fresh new thread for a fresh new start!
