I am new to this forum, (actually my first post) so please bear with me if I do not know all of the standard rules yet. I have been using EZ Pool. (I know, not good according to this forum) I am considering the BBB method now.
I have a 15,300 gal,
16' x 32' Vinyl In Ground Pool (No SWG)
Sand Filter (don't know the flow rate)
1-1/2HP Superflo Pump
Polaris Automatic Cleaner
After several days of rain my pool got a little out of control. I had green algea and very cloudy water. I have had the water tested at a Pool Store with their recommendations. The ALK, PH, Chlorine and CH were off.
The Pool Store Read Out is a follows:
TC - 0.0
FC - 0.0
PH - 6.4 - add 2lbs. of PH Plus (Goal 7.2 - 7.8)
TA - 40 - add 13lbs 8oz. Alkalinity Plus (Goal 80 - 120)
CH - 75 - add 26lbs. 4oz. Calcium Up (Goal 200 - 400)
Stablizer - 0 - add 6lbs. 4oz. Conditioner (Goal 30 - 100)
Algea - Green - add 24oz. Algea Control
Algea Shock 0.0 - add 2lbs. ShockWave or use 3lbs. Super ShockWave
I have the TA pretty much in check now at 100, but need to raise the PH without raising the ALK any more. How can I acheive this?
Their recommendations were to:
balance the pool first by raising the PH and ALK.
Then use Calcium Up
Then add Chlorine
Then add Algea Control
I would like recommendations from those on here using the BBB method on steps to be taken.
Thanks in advance and looking forward to learning the BBB process and telling the Pool Store GOOD BYE.
