Where do I start lol.
I opened my pool 5 days ago and cannot keeps chlorine level for more than. 12 hours. I've shocked with 2 gallons of 12% bleach from the pool store and after about 8 hours I got no chlorine readings either on my strips or Leslie's testing that they do in the store. I then added 2 gallons of unscented 6% bleach. I've watched over the last 8 hours As the chlorine levels go down. I then had Leslie's do a phosphate test. My test came back at 2500. They had me get phos free. Against my better judgement and the fact that I have a newborn infant at home, I didn't have time to research other options. The phos free started clogging my DE Filter. I had to end up back washing it, completely flushing it out of my filter. What are my options here.
My levels that they wrote down are these:
Hardness was in range. Didn't have a number
And total chlorine was not documented
As I said earlier, phosphate level was 2500
I have a 7500-10000 gallon in ground pool. It came with my house havent been able to determine the actual size. It's a kidney shaped pool.
