I'm having trouble with my Intex salt-water generator:
so in the mean time I'm using the BBB method to turn my green algae pond into a blue swimming pool again. Using the pool calculator, I've added the recommended amount of bleach to try & bring the FC up to 4.0, but after a few hours when I check, it's still at or near zero. So, I add more, wait, retest. I'm thinking the FC is "eating" the algae, so that's why it's taking so long to show up on my test kit. The water smells a little like bleach, and I *think* it's getting a little less green. Am I doing this right?
The pool is a 20' Intex above-ground 6300 gallon, with an Intex 100lb 2650gpm sand filter-pump. With just a tinge of color in the test kit, I assumed maybe FC of 0.5, target of 4.0, so I added 45oz of 6.125% Chlorox (through my brand-new skimmer )
Just wanting a sanity check here... seems like an awful lot of bleach, but it IS an awful lot of green water...
