Hello fellow pool owners!
I have been reading the information from TFP for about a year and a half and have started the BBB method full force beginning this pool season ..... this is a great site and before I ask a couple questions, I would like to thank all those involved in putting this together!
I have a 20,000 gallon pool, with a vinyl liner, a sand filter (third season for this filter), the pool is IG, the pump is a one and a half HP, I do not know the flow rate.
I opened the pool at the beginning of May, it was, as usual a dark green swamp, it has progressed into a beautiful shade of pale blue. I have shocked the pool with bleach just about every day for the last week and cannot get the cloudiness to completely disappear. I use a Taylor Test Kit, the FC in the morning is between 4 and 6, the PH is 7.2, the TA is 110, the CYA is 50 .... I have no other tests to report.
The FC does go down to zero after one day ..... any suggestions on how to get the water sparkling would be greatly appreciated!
