I have a green swamp and have read Jason's post for how to deal with it. However,
I'm not very smart and misery loves company, so I thought I would post my progress,
or lack thereof. Please feel free to critique or heckle anything that I post.
Last year, I finally finished installation of my SWCG just in time to close the pool.
Presumably, it will work if I can get the swamp under control (just in time to close it
Here's some numbers:
FC CYA TA PH
8AUG2011: 0 0 120 >8.2
Added 0 128oz liquid 10 cups dry acid
2 cups solid in a sock mixed in water
in the skimmer
9AUG2011: 0 16? (<20) 100 8.2
1. Should I worry about making it sparkle before I close??
2. I imagine that I need CYA and pH under control before beginning treatment for
algae. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
3. I have the filter on recirc until I start adding bleach (lliquid). Is that ok for now?
Please let me know. Thanks. Mule
