I am new to TFP and what a great site this is. Thanks in advance for suggestions and help.
I am trying to help my mother n law with her 22K gal IG pool and want to make it easier on her pocketbook, hence the reason why I added the SWG (circupool RJ45).
I am new to the whole pool keep up and getting the water cyrstal clear. When I started approx 3weeks ago it was a mess and green. Today it is clear but not like I want it. I took a water sample to a local pool supply and they talked me into Phosphate remover ($53) because it was around 1000, never again will I do that according to this wonderful site. I am having trouble getting my FC up and thats why I am here..
FC 0.31 - added 184 bleach yesterday and still low(lite yellow) this morning with Walmart test strips
PH 7.9 - added 1 quart acid yesterday
Salt - 4200 - a little high would like around 3500ish
I think I have an algae problem eating my chlorine, and need to shock. Pool Calc says to add 670oz of bleach, do I add all at one time? Please help.
With the cost of the SWG and chemicals just seems to be no end.... Also taylor k-2006 test kits order today. Thanks
