On day 3 of winter cleanup. Pool is more green than in previous years. Has been closed since November.
0 FC, not surprising
0 TA (surprising)
8.2 pH (top reading)
? CYA (cannot find view tube, new one on order) (USING 30 CYA as that is what it was last year)
after adding the following and circulating 12+ hours
1 gallon muratic acid
2 lbs baking soda (all I had on hand)
3 gallons 12.5% bleach (pool shock)
0 CC (odd?)
I think I am on track to clear pool again, but the drastic rise in pH and the loss of practically all TA has me a bit baffled.
