Went to the local store to have water tested this evening, and the guy couldn't believe it when I told him on Saturday we had a green swamp. Our readings were in "their" normal range except for CYA. He told me we must know what we are doing!! We do thanks to all of you!!
Our only problems are that Chlorine is not holding steady at all and the pool is cloudy. Giving Drop n' Vac a try. My husband works in wastewater industry, so he is adamant about dropping out the solids.
Heading out now to hang socks of stabilizer.
I am anxious to order my kit, so that I can test beyond the stuff my basic kit tests.
Thanks for all the great information on this forum!!
