Hi I am new to the forum and began using the BBB method this year. Looks like a great way to go. KISS.
Anyway opening this year I started off with trichlor and shocked it silly until things cleared. Which they did nicely. The pool had a low ph though so before I knew about the Borax I added Baking soda to bring it up. The TA was low as well. Unfortunately I added too much of baking soda which has brought the TA up to 120 and I added some Borax for the ph which is now about 7.2. The choline was at 0 two days ago, water was clear, I added two bottles if 182oz bleach yesterday. FC is now 6-7. and when I do the TC test it looks about the same as the FC color. CYA is high about 90.
Visually, the water looked great before I added the baking soda and borax. Now it really looks like a load of laundry went through. It is cloudy and a bit milky.
Any idea why the water got that way and how to clear?
