My neighbor who has had an AGP for 15 years and successfully maintained it with pucks and powder... Has a swamp!
He will not listen and won't use bleach for fear of hurting his liner! He let me test the water...
CYA 120 (1:1 pool water, tap water, 2x result )
I think his covering the pool over winter and not having a mess I'd leaves to clean out and drain off nasty water set him up for this since last winter was the first time he opened to a clean pool...
By my calcs his pool is about 18500 gallons (3.5 by 30 feet) he had a 1.5 hayward lx pump and a tiny 1.4 square foot sand filter.
He refuses to run the pump more than about 6 hours.
Sigh... By my calc he needs about 6 lbs of calhypo or 5 gallons of 10% to get to the minimum shock of 28 recommended by poolcalculator.
All he really wants to do is throw floc and bags of shock in there. He wants to get it clear in order to close it next month.
Meanwhile, I have a mosquito pit eyesore next door.
The pool we maintain is 1.5 miles away so he can't just see our results. Also the liner was damaged before we got the pool and we can't show him that bbb doesn't harm the liner due to that...
