Help ~ I'm confused about what steps to take now.
I posted new photos and a few questions in a thread about 'critters in the pool' but have not had a response. Maybe no ones looking at it, as I found the answer to that original question?
Took pump motor in for repair on April 7th. At the time, pool hadn't been filled, was relatively clear to see yuk on the bottom. Considering the motor was only supposed to take a week to fix, several days later I filled the pool for two reasons. To warm up the water and compensate for loss when it came time to vac to waste.
Regret that now, but too late.
The motor repair was a hastle, every week I was told it would be next week, the part they needed wasn't in yet.
Long story and not really relevant at the moment.
In the meantime, he told me to add bleach to keep it from getting green (greener). I was, but it got away from me after I filled the pool. (Waiting for the pump)
Through the ordeal I've been getting confusing test results.
June 20, had the pool store do a test when I got liquid shock. Their results:
TA=150 Adjusted TA=144
Using Taylor test kit, but with last years chemicals my results yesterday were:
I had vacuumed to waste initially and when stuff didn't end up in the pump basket I switch to filtering.
Pool has been cloudy. This morning after vacuuming though filters and getting lots of crud on them, I switched and vacuumed to waste again, and topped back up the water level...two inches maybe. Added a gallon of shock after a zero reading.
So at 12:30 today my tests are:
TA = 200
PH = 7.4-7.5
CYA= circle is half it's diameter with full tube.
I am concerned that the pool store got a CYA reading and I'm not able to.
And the TA is rising.
What to do?
Pool is cloudy but bluish.
