Opened 10 days ago, VIG with mesh cover that had torn over winter, some debris and pretty green with algae
Followed the BBB meathod and it cleaned up pretty fast. I was able to lower the initial CYA from 80 to 60 not sure how much it was my dumping water (vacuum to waste and backwashed filter a number of times) vs now testing with much less cloudy water though.
Shallow end looks clear but not sparkling. Deep end you can see the pebble grain at the bottom but it is definately still cloudy. Is it possible that the filter just needs more time to cycle the water ? It was running 10 days straight 24x7 or do you think the chemicals need adjustment ?
I used A&H washing soda to raise the PH and TA today. FC dropped from 5 to 3 in a 24hr period but it was 95 yeaterday
Thanks for the advice
