Hi folks. My new, unfinished pool is trying to have an algae bloom. For various reasons, it is only roughly 65% filled, and uncirculated. We're probably 2 weeks away from having it full and circulating, and the temps are warming up.
Tonight I added 6 quarts of 6% bleach (mixing 1 quart at a time in a 3 gallon bucket of water) and poured it slowly all around the pool. I then did my best to "mix" the water by using a dip net.
Based on my best guess of volume, and using the best guess chlorine chart, I'm assuming roughly a FC level of ~5.5ppm. We are supposed to have a few days of rain ahead of us now.
1) Do you think this is enough for now
2) would it be safe to try and add some CYA? And if so
3) How much should I try to add and how should I do it.
I'm open to any other suggestions too. I'm trying to prevent a green swamp from happening.
