We have been having problems with balancing our pool as of late. I ordered the TF-100 test kit this morning, but have been going to the pool store the past couple of days getting my numbers. It appears as if the water is clear on the top half and cloudy farther down. I have numbers for the past couple of days. The pool is a 27' AGP with salt water generator. The pump has been running 24 hrs a day for the past 4 days. The SWG is set to run 8 hours a day.
So here's the numbers (minus the CC, the pool store doesn't do that):
total adj alk: 88
total hardness: 262
Added 1 gal of muriatic acid. Added 4 ounces of polysheen blue. (Heavy rain overnight into the 15th. 2+ inches)
total adj alk: 96
total hardness: 270
Added 6 lbs of Stabilizer 100.
total adj alk: 73
total hardness: 272
Added 2.5 lbs baking soda. (Rain overnight 1/2 inch)
July 17 took a water sample from the top and also the very bottom.
TC: 5.5 for both
FC: 5.5 both
pH: 7.8 both
TA: 120 top 155 bottom
CYA: 130 top 120 bottom
total adjusted alk.: 81 top 119 bottom
total hardness: 310 top 276 bottom
Please help, the people at the pool place have no idea what's going on with our pool, and neither do I.
