I have been checking out your website for a couple weeks now and it is AWESOME! I bought an Intex 24 x 52 AG pool two weeks ago from Walmart. It came with a filter pump and all accessories. Set up pool, but didn't realize that we should have shocked it before we did anything else
We have shocked the pool and brush it daily. I bought the good test kit already and performed the tests last night and this morning.
I also bought the Intex SWG and set that up, but I believe that it needs more salt. (the unit has an error code) However, I am pretty much a single mom with two kids during the week, so I can't get in and stir the salt well at this time. I have been putting one bottle of bleach in the pool to by me some time until this weekend.
I think the CYA level is too low. How do I increase it? The clorine is fine now (actually I think a little high), but by the time I get home the clorine will be close to gone.
The PH has been high since day one and I have put a lot of PH down into it, but it doesn't seem to change the PH at all. Is there an easier way to get it lowered without using the acid?
How does the Alk look?
Lastly. the pool is pretty clear now, but when you get into the pool, it stirs up and then you can't see the bottom anymore. Kinda weird...
Any help would be appreciated.
