Ok so sit tight because I have multiple issues.
I have been turing my green pool blue for several weeks now, I am running my filter non-stop now and have seen some improvements. Let me also mention my pool is a beast and drinks chemicals like cocktails. I am using muratic acid and kem-teck (sp?) shock just for maintenance. I just bought, last night, cal-hypo at 65%. My numbers today were
As a side bar I am aerating the pool to decrease TA, and that is why my pH is low as well, added 2 gal of 29% MA last night. I checked just recently and looks like it is up to 7.0, I do live in arizona and it is hot, is this why pH is rising so quickly?
The kem-tek product has 36% available chlorine and states no calcium in product and will not change pH, (no CYA I assume). I have been using massive amounts of this product for several weeks, i would guess around 60-70 pounds since aug. 1
I am using the pool calculator and realize the csi is very low so I am hoping the cal-hypo will help raise the CH, and once the TA is lowered and pH is lowered I will be looking good. Except the pool is still slightly green and cloudy.
I also used the pool calc to generate the gallon amount of my pool, it is a diving pool so I took an average depth of 6 ft, the deepest part is 9 ft and shallowest is 4ft. is this correct, if so it is like 40,000 gallons.
any help is appreciated, thanks
