I am a new pool owner, this is my 2nd post. I started the shock process over a week ago, thanks to this forum! Pool really looks great with clear water. I have some pictures attached below. I think I have a leak in the liner, loosing more than an inch & half a day, I have left several messages for pool service guys but because of holidays no one has returned my calls, they must be really busy in my area! I fill everyday to maintain level so I can continue to fliter.
Water at shallow end of the pool is clear & steps and bottom are clearly visible, howver I can not see the deepend bottom at all. I am continuing to shock & trying to maintain FC 15 (pool calc syas 12) bit higher thinking that water will get clearer soon. I see no end to this process. I bought an Aquabot T2 which is working full time with pump on 24/7 for several days now, I still cant see deppend bottom!!!
I did overnight FC loss test and loss is zero. here are my numbers,
CYA 30 - 35
pH 7.5 may be bit higher
What am i doing wrong? my questions are,
1) should I continue to shock at 12 or 15? or maintain FC levels of min 2 & target 4 based on my CYA 30?
2) Should I continue to run pump 24 hrs/day?
3) should I continue to run Aquabot T2 full time?
4) I read somewhere that I should see the deepend bottom & main drain before swimming is this correct?
I would appreciate if you can help me end shock process and get water clearer to see bottm at deepend.
