To begin, thank you for providing this forum. I've already learned a great deal and look forward to learning much more.
pH - 7
Chlorine: off the chart(red in color)
I do not have any other readings but will add them tomorrow after a visit to Leslie's Pool Supply.
I will also purchase the Taylor Complete FAS-DPD Pool Water Test Kit K-2006.
During the last week of July I gave up my attempt at conquering the algae bloom and emptied the pool. I refilled the pool and added granular chlorine until I received a proper FC reading. After 2 weeks of heavy use, daily water tests(FC and pH) and filter changes the pool began to appear a little cloudy(I could still clearly see the bottom). I continued normal daily maintenance but added more chlorine. By August 17th the pool began to spiral down hill and algae was visibly present on the bottom. pH is currently low(7- pale yellow) and free chlorine is high(red color).
Any suggestions.I live in FL so we still have a couple months of pool time.
Thanks in advance.
