We've had trouble all week...started Tuesday morning. Pool started looking a little cloudy. Took sample to pool store. Don't have those readings with me now, but CYA was 0, so we added 6 lbs of stabilizer (18,000 gallon, SWG, vinyl liner, seasonal pool) and Muriatic acid. The next morning it was more cloudy but still swimmable. Pool store told us to super chlorinate for 24 hours, which we seem to do constantly. Got up yesterday and we can no longer see the drain. Went in to store to test and had 0 FC. Added 2 cases of liquid chlorine last night and it's even more cloudy today. Can't see the bottom or the steps, but according to pool store, numbers "look good".
CYA 62 TC3.7 FC3.7 ph7.4 TA121 They think I might have an algae problem but they don't know. Can't test for it. So they gave me a jug of "pool first aid" and told me to add 1/2 of the jug. If it's not better in 24 hours add the other half. So, I added the half about 30 minutes ago.
I'm planning to cancel our weekend pool parties... And I'm reading as much as I can on here so that I don't have to "trust" the pool store....but can anyone see anything else I should do right away? I'm a bit of a control freak, and feel like I have no control whatsoever on my pool.
Thanks for any help!!
