We purchased a house with a pool that had not been opened in several years. I removed the cover and it was black.
I removed several hundred pounds of debris but there is more that I can not see at this time.
I started shocking with Dichlor and got the pool to green. I hit it hard with Algae 60 and filter cleaner.
I decided the bag shock just wasnt going to cut it and could be more expensive in the long run.
Pool is around 20,000 gallons, 2 days ago I hit it with 8 gallons of pool store liquid chlorine and the pool has changed to light green tint to cloudy white. Still can not see bottom but can see down 2 steps of pool.
Backwash is not yeilding any green tint like it did during day 1 and it appears algae is gone
Hit is again yesterday with 5 gallons of chlorine at 5pm.
Today just tested the water and here are my readings
I am keeping a log of my readings now starting today to compare them
What should I do to be the most effective in getting to clear water?
Pump is on day 3 of 24 hours.
Looks like my chlorine level dropped since last night, what target numbers do I need to maintain during shock until water is clear?
