Please be gentle with me - my husband and I bought our first house last summer and thought we could handle the pool ourselves. However, we can't get it looking great since we opened it. I've never owned a pool and my husband grew up wiht an above ground pool. It's currently bluish with a touch of green and extremely cloudy. I bought the K-2006 test kit in hopes someone on here could assist. We have been pouring in liquid chlorine every few days and have kept 2 chlorine tabs in each basket (along with a bunch of other chemicals from the pool store we've put in), but can't seem to keep the level chlorine up and after it rained straight for the past few days I think the pool has just turned into rain water! Its a 25,000 gallon in-ground pool.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!
FC - I think 0 (kit came out as .5ppm)
CC - I think 0 (kit came out as .5ppm)
pH - 7.6
TA - 90ppm
CH - the test showed negative (blue)
CYA - I'm confused - the water never turned cloudy and was crystal clear - the black dot never disappeared.
I think I covered all the bases I should have. If I'm missing anything, please let me know.
