Hey new to the forum and the BBB method. I just found the website about a week ago and after reading through what I could a couple times to digest the info I decided to give this a try as the pool store method has recently cost me 400-500 dollars to try and clear up an algae problem.
At this point I have the algae dead I believe it was a yellow/mustard algae from what I can gather. The pool is blue but extremely cloudy. I've been at this step once before, last week, thinking my problem was over for it rear its ugly head again.
here is the basic info for my pool:
in-ground white plaster 22k gallons with a canister filter system.
test results provided by pool store tonight ( i ordered one of the recommend test kits from the website and am waiting on its arrival)
free chlorine, total, combines chlorine all zero
cyanuric acid 30
copper and iron 0
total dissolved solids 950
to overcome the lack of chlorine I added 4 gallons of 12% tonight.
Any thoughts on what I need to do. Thanks for the help and I'm looking foward to getting away from the pool store drug dealers
