I need to start by saying that I am a new pool owner. We have a "temporary" 16x32x52 pool that we have had up and running for a couple of weeks now. I did the math and I am pretty sure that is 13,500 gallons of pool water. The pool has a 4,000 gph pump & filter.
I followed the opening your temporary pool instructions from this site. I did the first four days using pool shock and have followed with bleach. I bought a 6-way test kit from Wal-Mart and I can not seem to get any reading for CYA levels. You put 7ml of water in the container, then 7ml of the chemicals and shake it up. Then you drip it into another tube with a dot on the bottom and record when you can't the the dot. The problem is that my water is clear after I shake it.
I am adding bleach every day because the chlorine is almost gone every time that I test it. Should I start over with the chemicals and shock it again? I tried searching the forums but it kept saying that my search terms were too common...
Any help would be appreciated,
