[attachment=0:36yz1knt]5-10-13 7 days filtering 24-7 (1024x576).jpg[/attachment:36yz1knt]I love the tfp site. I have read and reread the pool school info. very informative. purchased tf-100 on 3-9-13 should be in today.
5-3-13 filled pool with well water was a little cloudy.
started pool with salt and chl. started the swg. pool turned almost dark brown, could not see bottom of 48" pool after 2 hours.
per pool shop i added metal free,stabilizer,and ma because of high ta and ph .
next couple days was lowering ta with m.a. and aeration to raise ph
5-7 started to clear up meaning i could at least see the bottom of the pool. but turned to a dark greenish color.
been adding m.a, clh, stabilizer
pool pumps have been running 24/7 clean cartridge 3x's / back flushed 1x (rust/copper color) during bf
5-10-13 am pool shop results. started the bbb process per pool calculator
CC NO WAY TO TEST
USED POOL CALCULATOR. ADDED M.A TO LOWER PH TO 7.6 AND LOWER TA
STARTED "THE SHOCK PROCESS" PER P.C. T0 20 (USING CHLORINE/CYA CHART BY CHEM GEEK)
5-11-13 AM, TESTED FC WITH KIT I HAVE, ONLY READS TO 5.0.
(DARK ORANGE ALMOST BROWNISH I THINK OVER 20?? TC)
WHEN TL-100 ARRIVES, I KNOW I NEED TO DO THE FAS-DPD TEST, BUT IS THIS THE TEST I USE TO TEST SHOCK LEVELS?
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP
