I got my new TFtest kit today. Bought the heavy duty XL edition. Opened pool on Memorial day weekend to a green monster. Hit it with 6 lb shock and it boiled up nice with dead stuff on the top. Got water tested at pool store and had these numbers
Alkalinity=280 ppm yikes
Salt = 2510
Added three bags of salt, 4 lbs stabilizer and set to super chlorinate.
Tested today with my new chemistry set and things looked like this
CC= not tested
pH=above 8.2 yikes again
Pump bit the bullet today so no circulation. New one tomorrow and I will get another store test while I am there to see if my numbers are close..
Clearing up nice but still a little cloudy with some debris on bottom. After new pump will vacuum tomorrow. Slowly but surely getting it there. Thanks for all the help. TOM
