Ooooooo.... n it's growing vegetation!
Okay, it's not totally green but the pool hasn't been fed for atleast a month. I'm surpised it's not green soup right now but I have the famous *squalls* of algae on the bottom of the floor and up the walls. So, my numbers are as follow:
pH: 7.5 (I adjusted it yesterday)
TA: 70 (I adjusted it yesterday)
BTW, it is a 24ftx48in above ground pool w/ DE filter.
So my game plan is to:
Scoop leaves from center of pool (done).
Test the water and make necesary adjustments (done).
Brush the walls and floor of pool (done).
Change DE in the filter (tonight, Tuesday).
Start shocking (tonight, Tuesday).
Go to brother's at 6am check over night loss (morning, Wednesday)
Continue nightly shocks until complete... (hoping to have it kicked by Friday...)
I could have started this the other day but my brother didn't have enough bleach. What he does have, would have been wasted if I put it in. He wanted to and I said no, it can wait. His wife (soon to be ex) hasn't taken care of it nor bought supplies for it. She left him yesterday and took everything in the house while he was working right down to the salt n pepper shakers. He wants to just close it and we're waiting on the pool cover she was suppose to order... (if she even did order it) He asked me to step up and take care of it while he works and goes to school. I will but man I feel for him.
I'll include pics soon since I know ya'all need you pic fixes!
