I am a new pool owner. My pool was installed late last year, so it was never opened and closed late and unforntunately had many leaves in it.
I now have it opened and shocked (sodium Dichloro-s-Tri) the pool. I also have vacuumed a lot of debris from the pool. I have the filter running 24/7 for about 24 hours now. I have 2 test kits neither one very good as I found out today. The 6 way combo has the FC-6, TC-4, TA-90, PH-7.4, CH 50. The other test kit is a titration (I think) it test for FC-10+ and PH-6.8. I don't no my CYA, but all I've added is the shock.
The water is still pretty cloudy, I can see the bottom of the shallow end but not the deep end.
Should I add something to bring the PH back up or should I let it run for another day and see. Its been cloudy for the last 2 days and we have a cold spell coming.
Thankyou to everyone that contributes to this site, what a valuable resource.
