Hi there, I am new to TFP and hope there is some hope for my pool. I have read through every post I can find that pertains to my problem with no avail. I have ordered the FAS-DPD Service Test Kit through Leslie's but it has not arrived yet. Needless to say, I purchased the 6-way test kit available at Wal-Mart because I needed to have a clue where my numbers stand. I know I am not losing FC because my readings are at least 5 (probably more). For 3 weeks I have consistently added 6% bleach to maintain a chlorine level. At least 1 gallon every other day. As of today, I roll up the solar cover and it is still cloudy. I would estimate that I can only see 6-8 inches below the surface. I have vacuumed, backwashed, rinsed, vacuumed to waste. I am so frustrated. Here are my numbers:
CYA 30+ (I could still see the black dot when the vial was full, it was just starting getting hard to see)
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I know the TA has to be lowered, but I'm not sure what order to add chemicals for fear of making it worse.
