Hi all, I need advise/ support. I have been a TFP supporter/ lurker/ learner for the last 4 years and have never posted, because I didn't need to until now! I feel like I am an advanced beginner with a fairly good grasp of the chemistry concepts.
Pool specifics: 18x36 grecian, vinyl liner, 3hp Emerson pump (I know too big, but here when we bought), sand filter, live in southwest Virginia.
Opened pool to light green as we had a huge windstorm on closing day and brewed "leaf tea" during the winter. Brought to shock, kept at shock level of 22, brushed daily, and now a week later still cloudy in the deep end! Color is milky blue and I can barely make out the main drain.
Right now: FC 28
ph- not measured due to high chlorine
cya- 50ish (warmed to room temp)
So, about 3 days ago I increased shock level to 28-32 just in case I was misreading the CYA, thus not reaching the correct level.
I am frustrated now- Not seeing the daily progress I was expecting and wondering what else I need to do!!! Please advise, oh wondrous ones!! I will be forever in your debt! Thanks!!
