Hey guys and gals!!! Its me again!!!!
Finally after all the rain and hectic schedule I was able to get my pool uncovered today....but it is a green mess!!! Did not get the cover on as quickly as we should have last year so it does have a little bit of leaves that will need to be removed....BUT very little as compared to in the past!!! The biggest problem is that the hickory nuts started falling before we could get the cover on last fall.
I am not worried because it is NOT the mess it was last year and with the help of all of you... it was sparkling clean within a couple of weeks and I know it will be again!!
I just wanted to post my numbers and make sure I do everything in the correct order!!! I have plenty of bleach on hand and ready to start shocking it tonight with the first load.
Here are my numbers:
FC - 0
CC - 0
pH - 7.5
TA - 150
CH - 150
CYA - 0
I am concerned about the CYA reading as 0 when it was not that low at all last year when we closed the pool .... but we did have a hard time keeping the CYA above 20 due to the fact we had to keep refilling our pool.... Don't know if it has a leak.... in the liner or just exactly what is the problem but we do have the name of someone that will come out and look for leaks. The liner is only 2 years old.
I have read the SWAMP notes... several times!!!!
Do I need to raise my CYA and lower my pH before I start adding bleach?????
I do have the pump running now and we did change out our sand this year.
Does it make a difference if we don't know what our pool temp is????
The Pool calculator is telling me to shock it to 10.... which is about 2.4 (182 oz) jugs.
Anxious to get started... just need someone to tell me where to start!!! Thank you for your help in advance!!!!!
