Okay, so I have been reading like crazy for three days and I have learned a lot but not enough. The pool I have is in my sig. It is our second year with it. So far we have been good, but all of a sudden everything went haywire. I previously had some strange levels, but I drained half of the water and refilled. I just finished refilling it and just ran a test with Walmart HTH 6 way kit. My readings now are as follows:
pH 6.8 probably lower
I just added about 96 oz. of liquid chlorine (10%). So what now? I know I need to get CYA and pH up. I am about to add granual stabilizer using sock hanging in pool. I have borax for pH, but how much do I add or do I wait for chlorine to run its course?
Btw, I drained pool because it was extremely cloudy and my wife added tons of liquid shock and chlorine was reading zero. Then my CYA was off the charts, so we drained and refilled. Its still cloudy now, but not as bad.
