My pool has been looking good all summer. A few weeks ago it didnít have the sparkle that it used to have. Recently it has been looking a little cloudy (not green, just cloudy) and very recently noticed some light brown stuff on the bottom of the pool. It has been like this for about a week now. Not knowing anything about pools all I had been doing is putting in the chlorine pucks (trichlor) in a floating dispenser and testing the levels of chlorine. Recently I havenít been able to get the water to hold any chlorine. So I found this forum and read up on things and came to the conclusion that the pool probably has too much CYA because of all the trichlor so I needed higher chlorine levels to fight off the algae. I canít get the recommended test kit so for now I just got the 6-way HTC kit. I was expecting to drain half the pool and replace with fresh water but to my surprise the CYA was well below the kits range.
My plan of attack is to add stabilizer to get the water in the correct range of CYA and proceed with shocking the pool.
Any thoughts on this?
Am I headed in the right direction?
