I need help.
I have been tooting the TFP horn for over a week now to hubby. He seems to still be reluctant about completely following the advice here. Since I'm off for the summer (I'm a teacher), most of this week's pool work has been left to me, since he is at work.
I went to the pool store twice this past week (I honestly don't have enough $$ to purchase a TF-100 test kit right now). Here are yesterday's numbers (pool is still a "clear" green, albeit MUCH lighter than it was on Tuesday when I went to the pool store).
TA: 75 (added about 10 lbs. of baking soda yesterday around noon, hubby vacuumed pool in the evening, I also switched out filters before adding baking soda, and he did after vacuuming).
pH: 7.48 (the borax I had added after Tuesday worked!!)
CYA: 22 (this has dropped from 30 on Tuesday)
FC: 5.49 (this was at 8.95 on Tuesday)
TC: 5.72 (this was at 8.95 also on Tuesday...I'm thinking this is where things partly went wrong, I didn't add any more bleach after Wednesday evening)
CH: 25 (how much do I need to worry about this number with an above ground Intek pool?)
Salt: 3320 (up from 3100 on Tuesday...how did this happen since I didn't add any more salt...also haven't run SWG in over a week, I know that doesn't MAKE salt...just adding that information in)
So, my hubby last night, before I could say no, added in half a bottle of what we had left of "Defender" some green away algaecide I'm guessing, from the pool store. Not sure what is in it, no ingredient list on bottle.
The pool is BARELY green. What should I do?
