so you know my backround. we have had the pool for 4 years(came with the house when we bought it) w/ the first 2 years using bromine and then switching to chlorine late the 3rd year since we replaced our liner. we are now in the 4th year and it seems like i can't keep up so i found this site did some reading and i am still confused on some stuff. particularly the shocking process.
i should also note that i use name brand chemicals. plan on doing the BBB thing next year.
so i recently got my tf-100 test kit and these are the results on day 1
CYA= 40 (closer to 35 kinda hard to tell)
i added 59oz of 68% cal-hypo to bring my CC's down and the next day i got these results.
seems like i am doing it right but my pool is still cloudy so i did an OCLT. i tested it twice before sundown and got 14.5 FC both times so i shut off my chlorinator and checked it the following morning at 6 AM and still got 14.5 FC.
i guess my question is do i add more shock? it seems like i don't want to raise the chlorine becuase all the levels are ok but i still have a cloudy pool.
