Hey guys, we have an in ground pool (approx 25000 gal). Last year we switched from Bacqua to chlorine using the BBB method. This year opening the pool was a breeze and it was sparkling clean for a few months. I have been raving about TFP forums ever since! It was so much better than using the Bacquacil, until now.
We've had a TON of rain here in the past few weeks --to the point the pool fills way above the skimmer line and we have to drain it which I hate doing in the summer!
Since we've gotten all the rain it's gotten cloudier and now we're battling algae.
Here are the readings as of this morning. I believe my husband was confused when he added a bunch of baking soda yesterday which raised our TA way up. Our CH is low and our CYA is a little bit high. The pH is high, too, but I have a hard time telling what color red it is. That pH test is so subjective, I wish there was an easier way to accurately test it.
So, help? Where should we go from here? The algae is getting worse.
Here are the levels this morning:
ph 7.8 or maybe a little higher
Here is our pool this morning and also a screenshot of our pool readings from the calculator.
