Following the advice I'd received on here, our pool was looking great. Chemical levels were all in check and the water was a nice clear blue.
Yesterday evening the water level was a little low so we put the hose in the pool. Unfortunately both my husband and I forgot about it and we ended up adding about 4-5 inches of water to the pool. When we woke up this morning, we found our pool to be a nice, greenish tint and remembered the hose. I figured the chlorine levels must be low so I ran all of the tests to see what I needed to add. My results were:
TC = 4.5 ppm
CC = 0.5 ppm
pH = 7.5
TA = 170
CYA = 50
CH = 470
Salt = 2640 ppm
We added two bags of salt to the pool yesterday and I've been adding CYA over the last week or so to bring the levels up to 70-80 ppm. The filter ran the entire time the pool was filing.
Can anyone enlighten me as to what is going on and how I can fix it? We have guests from TX coming in on Tuesday and we were planning on lots of pool parties this week! Help!
