Water is whitish clear but cloudy... looks like tap water with tons of chlorine in it almost that's foggy in the glass before it settles.
Test Kit comes thursday so I run and get a gallon of liquid CYA, no patience, dump it in early evening late afternoon. (Sunday) Put dry cya in a sock and massaged till gone.
Saturday PH = 7.2 TA = 160 CYA = 25 turned return up to aerate, make bubbles
Monday, yesterday, PH = 7.2 TA = 140 CYA = 50 Dumped in 4 gallons of 8.25% bleach to shock the **** out of it. tested late yesterday showed chlorine above 10.
Tuesday, today, PH = 7.2 TA = 140 CYA = 50 FC = .5 CC = 2 TC = 2.5.
Still making bubbles to try and lower the TA a bit. I know my ph needs to come up.
our water from the hose is off the charts high.
I didn't write it down I think my borates were at 50.
I didn't test the specific amount of chlorine yesterday (I waited several hours after adding bleach) at above 10 because wasn't worried about it. I just didn't expect it to go away from yesterday morning to this morning w/ CYA in there or is that not near enough?
Yesterday I did try to sweep the bottom which there's some gunk those little finger looking things from the neighbors pine trees mainly. I'm sure I didn't get all of it as the hose developed a crack in it and broke.
Can't see much really it appears to be clean looking but can see a dark spot on the middle where it settles just vaguely if standing on deck.
I think it's in my sig but just in case.
24' round intex w/ intex 2650 gph sandfilter swg.
supposed to hold 12500 gal of water.
