I'm putting all of my test results into a Google Doc so you can see the history as well as any notes I've made. Any chemical additions in the Notes section were done immediately AFTER that particular test was taken so the results of that addition would be seen in the following line. Google Doc can be accessed here:
OK. So you can see that I've worked on getting the Ph down to around 7.5 and the CYA up to about 30, per the recommendations I received earlier from members here. Now I'm kind of stuck because the pool is getting cloudier but I'm not sure if that's due to the two inches of rain we've gotten this weekend or if I'm screwing something up. It seems like it should be getting clearer but I'm going backwards. So, last night I decided to start bringing it up to shock level which I understand is 24 for my SWG vinyl inground. Unfortunately, I was a couple gallons short last night so I had to make a run this morning to get more bleach but I went ahead last night and put in what I had which is why you see the level is up to 12 now. I have enough bleach now to take it to 24 but I want to make sure I should do that so I'm seeking advice here first. And by the way, you get some funny looks when you buy six big jugs of bleach and a bag of lawn fertilizer at the same time.
Anyway, does anyone have any suggestions for me? Maybe I'm just not being patient enough and these things take time... I don't know anymore.
Thanks in advance..
