Hi Folks, its been some time since i've been on the forum, especially since they blocked it at work You all and the BBB method have done wonders for my pool over the last several years that I have been paying it forward by helping any one I can with their pools,they are all on their own now using theTF100 and the BBB method,some folks even in their eighties that have had pools for 30+ years have said their pools have never looked better. What brings me here today is I have a new friend in trouble, in the past i's only taken me 4 or so days for results, no going so well this time I'm sure I'm on the right track and haven't had to dig deep for this much POP in a while.
It's an 21ft round 11700gal, sand filter, new install filled with town water 7-2-12 (high iron) she put no stabilizer she cured her clear green tinted iron problem with iron out but never really dosed it with chlorine on the 18th the bright green alge bloom appeared the pool store gave her a bucket of some thing (she cant remember) to get the metals to settle to the bottom of the pool, it went from line green to grey thick soup and slime that could be scooped off the top then back to gray milk, she then added 1/2qt of poly60.
This is where I came in, brought my TF 100 over , hers is on the way, no CYA, no FC, 1CC,PH 6.8. I adjusted for 7.2 which is where we're at now I dosed with stabilizer for a CYA of 50 we brought FC up to 15 it held overnight dropped to 13 this morning .5 CC re dosed it of an FC of 16, vac and brush continuously of course. I'm not getting much visually but the numbers look good. I guess i'm looking for confirmation that i did not miss something.
