New here, so bear with me please if I don't get everything right.
Pool Store test results last night
FC - 5PPM
CC - 0ppm
pH - 6.2
TA - 80 ppm
CH - 250 ppm
CYA - 20ppm (stabilizer/conditioner)
When we got home from the pool store we vacuumed on waste, backwashed the filter and added 3lbs of Blue Shield Stabilizer/Conditioner & 2lbs pH up.
From my testing kit about 20 minutes ago.
FC - Over 3 (my test kit only goes to three)
CC - untested
pH - 7.2
TA - 90 ppm
CH - untested
CYA - untested
I need to get a better test kit. I find it hard to match the colors with such a small range
The water color is/has been a milky blue for about a week now. It was dark green when we opened it 2 weekends ago.
Do I just need to filter it longer and continue to backwash as the pressure rises? Do I continue to add chlorine to the pool? We use liquid shock from Namco pool. 12.5% and I keep 2 chlorine tabs in the skimmer.
Please let me know if I need to put more information.
Thank you ahead of time for any advice!
