Okay I was on here last year and Several people helped me and I had no trouble getting my girlfriends pool as clear as a bell from a green lagoon. This year is another story.
To start with I guess I didnt do a good job of closing the pool because it was green and cloudy when opened.
I have been working on it for a week now and cannot get it cleared up...Please tell me what I am doing wrong, this is reading from a few minutes ago and right after this I added 182 oz of Bleach.
FC - 12
CC - 0
pH - 7.2
TA - 100
CYA - 35
I have already put like 20 gallons of bleach at least in the pool and have had the FC at 19 for like 12 hours and then the same day did the Overnight test and it dropped like 2.5 overnight.
I have been trying to keep the level up but it is hard with having to buy so much bleach.
I gave in a used 3 bags of Aqua Chem Shock Xtra Blue that she had in the shed from early last year. Ingredients are:
Sodium Dichloro-s-triazinetrione 63.05%
Copper (Metallic) 0.26%
Other Ingred. 36.69%
Total Ingred. 100%
Avail. Chlorine 39%
I know I shouldnt have done this but I wanted to get the Chlorine up to Shock level without having to go to town to get bleach again.
I have vacuum to waste multiple times and have had the filter on for a week now straight. I dont see any algae but I cannot see the bottom of the pool in the deep end and barely in the 4 foot shallow end.
Any suggestions. Thanks so much for help and to keep my girlfriend off of my back.
