Our pool finally finished filling this morning after having the plaster, tile, and coping all redone. So, I get the filter turned on, backwashed real good, refilled with de. Then I put in 2 jugs of bleach. I knew FC was at 0 and since it took a whole week to refill the pool, I knew it needed a lot. Then I came inside for lunch. Figured I'd let that circulate a while then I'd go do my full water testing and see what else to add. Well, then my husband gets home from running errands and goes, "What did you do to the poo??" I was like, "I just added bleach and turned on the filter, why?". Our pool is full of yellow water. Like, it literally looks like we filled it up with pee!! Oh my gosh. What did I do?? Please don't tell me I'm like ruining our brand new plaster right now!! I went ahead and did my full water test.
pH: 8.2 (at least...)
So far, I have added 4lb out of the recommended 9lb from pool calculator for stabilizer. Also have added the 3qt 1c of muratic acid to lower pH. Need to run to Leslie's for some calcium hardener since we don't have any at the house. The water test came back negative for metals, but I do know my husband still added a bottle of MetalOut while it was filling to make sure we wouldn't end up staining the new plaster. Any other recommendations about my yellow water??
