This is our 2nd year with our pool. We filled the pool back up (it was drained below the returns. We tested the water after getting the pump/filter running and our tests said CYA 0, FC 0 of course, TA 90, and we have a vinyl liner so we haven't tested the CH yet.
Last year we started out with the pool store and thus, have a ton of pucks and dichlor "pool shock" in 1lb bags. So after doing some reading on here, we saw that some people use it, so we added 2 1lb. bags per directions on the bag. (1 per 12,000 gallons).
Next morning - FC 0 CYA 0 TA 100.
Added 2 bags this morning and tested 2 hours later : FC 0, CYA 0, TA 100. Water looks clearish but green tinge and little cloudy.
(I read this morning that cold water can mess up that reading so we tried again with room temp water, and it is maybe reading at 10)
What do we do at this point? I am leary to add more of the bags of dichlor because I don't want too much more CYA and/or any other stuff that might be in those bags. But, at the same time would like to use it up if we can.
Any advice on how we should proceed?
thanks so much!!
