I moved away for a year and came back to a swamp. I'm trying to fix it. My buddy turned me on to TFP.com and let me borrow his TF 100 kit. I've enjoyed reading the information on this site. My pool is no longer a swamp but the water is still cloudy.
On 1 Apr my levels were:
I added 6% liquid bleach and a couple of trichlor pucks
A later test had the following results:
pH: Not recorded
T/A: Not tested
Went on vacation and came back to clumps of algae floating on top of the pool that were easily skimmed off. My FC was at 0 I switched to 12% bleach. I added a total of 7.5 gallons yesterday. I used a leaf eater and pulled green algae, dirt and some small sticks and a few pine needles off the bottom.
I used drop out last night . This morning there was more visibility but still mostly cloudy.
Am I on the right track to get my water crystal clear? Levels tonight are:
Just added a jug of bleach to bring back to shock level
