We have been pool owners for over 10 years and the last 3 years have been so frustrating. On the advice of our pool store, we've been pouring hundreds/maybe thousands of dollars into chems without great results. I'm willing to give the BBB system a try but I'm a little nervous due to my lack of water chemistry knowledge. First things first, I don't own a recommended test kit. I will order one but that will take precious time to arrive. In the meantime I am relying on the results from my pool store. They carry a Bioguard Multi Test kit 1200V, is that adequate or should I wait and order the Taylor K-2006??
The pool store recommended that we change the filter sand, which we did yesterday and shocked again last night. This morning, pool is still green. Had water tested at store and results were:
CH: 153 (given as Total Hardness reading)
I was told to adjust the pH by adding 6lbs of Lo'n Slo. Then add shock and algaecide tonight????? Just doesn't sound right to me?
We had the water tested yesterday but I cannot find the result sheet. Prior to that, we had it tested Saturday (8/4) with the following results.
We shocked it!
Any help or advice on where to start with this would be so appreciated!!!!!! Thank you
