    Day 55 and I have the pool I wanted

    So we moved in 55 days ago, and I have been struggling to get the pool where I wanted it. We have been running the filter, not running the filter, adding stuff, testing with strips, backwashing, vacuuming, all with little results that really got the pool clean.

    I came to the forum 3 days ago, and now this is my pool .

    Finally vacuumed with some sense, and rather than sucking up the green stuff and hoping my filter cleans it, I shocked the pool and killed it, now after vacuuming up the residue, the pool is actually clean!!

    Finally clear down through the ladder!

    Welcome to actually OWNING your pool!

    Pool School helps me maintain my 13,500G 24' x 48" ASP with Sand Filtration using a TF100 Test Kit and Pool Calculator.
    Remember, the Shock Process should be followed until : 1. CC is less than 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT shows a loss of 1.0 ppm or less and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    How deep is the deep end? Those side really slope but not very steep. Crystal clear looks great!!!

    Sides don't slope very aggresively which is fantastic because you can actually stand in the deep end without slipping. Deep end is about 8 ft maybe 7.5 ft, will measure with a tape sometime for sure. Still getting her in top shape you know.

    Next step is finding out actual CYA to ensure I am keeping FC at the right levels.
