I'm opening the pool for the summer after using SWCG last year. I pulled the cover to find a green mess.
For the life of me, I can't find my TF-100, so at the pool store I grabbed this PoolMaster Basic 5 test kit until my new TF-100 arrives (already ordered).
So, I don't have full numbers. However, to start with, my FC test results in VERY ORANGE. It is not even close to the ranges of yellow on the test kit.
My pH is pinker than the 8.2 range.
The water mostly cleared up over night (not green anymore) to where I can easily see the bottom of the pool, but it is far from ready (obviously).
Any suggestions on how to tell what my real FC and TC is, and what to do until the TF-100 arrives?
I have NOT turned on the SWCG until I get the chemicals balanced out.
