Ok... I got my test kit in today.
FC - 1 ppm
CC - 1 ppm
pH - less than 6.8
TA - 30
CYA - 90
Pool was blue and cloudy... I couldn't see the bottom of the deep end.... started scooping with the leaf rake and wow.... probably got 50 lbs of leaves out. Now the water is green and swampy again. I kept scooping until I was getting no leaves... so most are out. I started draining the pool to lower the CYA... I plan on replacing about half the water. It's going to take a while b/c I had to start using a water hose to drain it. I was just pumping to waste... but the neighbors down the hill started to complain after I drained about 2500 gallons.
I got on the pool calc and figured I need a lot of Baking soda, Borax, and of course good ol bleach. Any input or advice is definately appreciated... this is my first time!!
