So I opened the pool Friday, and started the BBB system for the first time.
Pool was light green. No chlorine, and very HIGH ph. We are in "shock" mode now. Got my PH holding steady at 7.4 Maintaining a 20 ppm for chlorine/bleach. Adding/testing in the morning and at night. Every day less and less bleach has been needed. I am hoping this is a sign, I am heading in the right direction. My pool is now blue, but cloudy. Can not see the bottom yet. But I am being hopeful, as I was told it could take some time.
Loving the test kit (taylor K-2006) But the only drawback, is testing the chlorine levels twice a day, at such high levels I am burning thru the drops quickly. Any advice on the best place for a refills?
PS, We are having 90 degree weather, and the worst part of all of this, is the kids nagging to swim!
