hello TFP we've had an odd opening this year.... (whats new )
opened pool sunday to green color. winter cover blew off in march. got it back on a few days later but what can i do...
added what bleach i had on hand, also had some shock bags so ive used them up along the way. working with other levels as well baseds on the pool calc app. using BBB method sans a few bags of shock
6/2 Ph 6.4
8 am only checked shock level FC 20 added another bag at this time
5pm Ph 7.0 Alk 90 CYA 25 calcium 220 FC 19 CC 0
overnite the green turned to cloudy blue cannot see bottom
8am Ph 7.0 Alk 80 FC 14.5
2pm Ph 7.1 Alk 80 FC 17.5 starting to clear, barely see bottom
9 pm Ph 7.0Alk 80 FC 20.5 (anomoly i experienced last year, FC would rise even though i didnt put any new bleach in. i cano nly attribute it to adding drops too fast hence reducing the size of the drops)
no change overnite - running pump on low 24 hours a day cleaning filter (cartridge at least 2 times a day - filter quite clean no green just occasional grey color)
6/5 Ph 7.0 Alk 80 CYA 25 FC 16.5
I assume im on the right path, but expected the water to begin clearing by now. should i add DE to my cartridge filter? its brand new this year.
