Hope you all can help We began our conversion on Saturday, July 24th and for the last two nights (Thursday and Friday) our FC held at 15ppm so my husband cleaned the filter and we added the CYA last night (Friday). I checked the levels today and they are the following:
The pH is low, so should I add the Borax. The pool guy, whom I won't go back to see, gave me some pH plus and said to add that. Would that work or should I just add the Borax based on the amount needed using Jason's calculator. I am using the Taylor TF-100 test kit, our pool is an above ground with vinyl liner that holds 12,000 gallons of water. Set it up in 2008 with Baquacil and was fine the first season, but last year it turned cloudy about towards the end of the summer and this year turned cloudy a month into the season. My hubby changed the sand right before the conversion because we were told by the lady at the pool store to do so to get rid of the cloudy water. This was back when we were trying to keep with the Baquacil. Please pardon my inexperience with chlorine and testing, this is all new to me. I had pretty much mastered the testing for Baquacil, but am having to learn all about chlorine. My hubby added 68 gallons (I think) so far of bleach. It looks really clear, just green. I hope I haven't totally messed this up. Last Saturday before my hubby added the bleach, he added a non chlorine shock that the guy at the pool store told him to add and he had the week prior been putting a chlorine tablet in the skimmer everytime the one prior dissolved. Could the low pH be making it green. Thanks so much!
