im soo mad. first of all its my parents pool. (i live with them)... our pool has been clear all year but there has been a nasty iron stain on the botttom. i took care of the stain with stain free and metal free (plus polyquat 60). its been exactly one week since i did the treatment. ive been adding 6% bleach all week but it hasnt been registering on this cheap A** test kit ive been using. throughout the whole staining process the pool has been crystal clear and the pump has been running. on friday my mom turned the pump off and the next day(yesturday) i woke up and went outback to find a cloudy blue pool. i added 6 gallons of 6% bleach. plus 3 more after that. so i added 9 gallons of bleach to the pool yesturday and when i wake up today the pool is a cloudy green. i feel like im going backwards.
my mom knows nothing about pools so maybe if you could tell her how important it is to have a good test kit she will buy one(i will let her read these messages) . she thinks i want her to buy a $70 test kit for no reason. i really dont no what direction to go in with this pool. does anyone have any sugestions. i can give you an "ideal" test from this cheap a** drop test and the strips.
cya 62 (got this tested at pool store on wed.)
I must say the water is a little clearer than yesturday (you can see the bottom) but there is a green tint to the water. (wasn't there yesturday)...
this is me this is my mom this is where we want to be
