I opened my pool on Sunday to a green mess due to a sagging cover. We dumped half the water and then dipped out all we could. We started shocking at 10-15 with great value bleach. We started filling the pool back up on Monday with water. Have been testing and shocking according to the pool calculator.
It is still very green.... and I did expect it to take maybe all week.
I have gone through about 12 - 121 oz jugs so far. The big surprise is today. I've got it full of water again. My FC was at 13 this morning around 7:30. Just now tested again and it is at 11.5. As green as it is I expected it to be at 0-1. I vacuumed and scrubbed the walls yesterday. I did add about 2 lbs of cya last night but not showing up yet on testing.
ph = around 8
FC = 11.5
cya = 0
ch = 250
ta = 200
Does this sound normal???
I have been doing the bleach method for 2-3 years and never had my FC stay up this long with this much green.
Am I missing something somewhere??
