Went to the pool store and they did a water analysis for us, free of charge, since we still had some of the chemicals we had purchased from them.
Here is the list:
total Alkalinity: 55
Their prescription: turn off SWG for 72 hours (to avoid damage), add 5 lbs of TA (baking soda), wait 2 hours, add 5 more lbs (total of 10 lbs), add algaecide, then when pool is clear, put 4 lbs of stabilizer in pantyhose, and hang that on ladder
not necessarily thinking this is the best prescription for the green, but not THAT cloudy, brand new pool...help please!
