This is my 3rd year with my pool--2nd year opening. Last year was a breeze as cover came off, water was clear, etc.
This year we had some wind that ripped a part of the cover. I went ahead and took off the cover, added water and started the pump.
Water was green and we fished out all of the debris we could see. Initial test results were:
CYA 15 (tough to get a good read with dirty water)
I started with CYA via sock method. Lowered PH and shocked the pool over night. In process of shocking pool right now.
This am the water was greyish cloudy and the ph was 7.2. FC had gone back down to 1. I am in the process of keeping the FC at shock levels and the water is cloudy.
How long will the water remain cloudy? I have some Polysheen Blue stuff that came with the pool I have never used. I am VERY reluctant to use this as I have been faithful to the BBB since I have had the pool with the exception of some tri-chlor that came with the pool initially. What is this Polysheen Blue stuff from Bioguard anyway? Would it help or should I just stay the course?
How do I proceed from here and what is the timetable I should expect?
