Long story short, bought a house with a pool last August and got the pool closed okay last fall, but have "opened it" now and have some questions.
Have a 33' round above ground pool, that I have been told, holds 27,900 gal. It has a Sta-Rite Sand Filter and 1.5 HP pump. It has a Mineral Springs SWG (which I love and is one reason why we bought the house), but I don't like to be over charged for things I can purchase cheaper and with as few chemicals as possible. We have had the cover off of the pool for about a week and the water was clear when we took it off. We ran the Dolphin several times to get the stuff off of the bottom. I tested the water yesterday (after letting the pump/filter run for several days) with the Taylor K-2006 test kit and the Taylor K-1766 salt water test kit and here are my results:
FC: no reading (didn't register)
CC: no reading (same as above)
TA: 100 ppm
CH: 120 ppm
CYA: no reading (didn't register)
I would really like to know how much of what products (BBB) I need to add especially now that the water has gone to a cloudy green in the last 24 hours. I live in Nixa, MO (southwest MO). Any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated, we are really new to this and want to do it right! Would also like to know what I should do for general maintenance throughout the season. Thanks again!
