I an need some help on my pool. The pool is a 24 round 48 inch high with a 1.5hp pump on a 300 or 350 lb filter I cant rember i just replaced it last year and the pool was not covered over winter so it was very green. I filled the pool up from winter level on last sunday and started the pump and filter. I got the water tested and started shocking with liquid. It started cleaning up a bit and is very cloudy. Yesterday it was blue but cloudy and I had the the pool shop test the water.
tatal hardness 200
total chrlorine 10
free chlorine 0
I told them I could not get the free chlorine to hold as I shocked the night before. They told me that the pool is holding I just dont have free and I should not add any more chlorine untill it comes down a bit. They want me to shock with 3lb of chrlorine free stuff.
