We've had our pool in ground pool since 2005 and I am going to be taking over the maintanence of it since my hubby has strange hours and we've been having issues for the last year....
Our pool has a southern exposure and is usually about 87 degrees... we have a solar system on our homes roof and we usually cool the water at night.
We've been having trouble with cloudy water and keeping the FC going (although I think the pool smells like chlorine) In the past we've had trouble with 'dead chlorine' but the pool company doesn't say that's an issue now. About 2 weeks ago the pool clouded up and we took a sample in and then did what was recommended... 2 days later it's happening again only it seems to have a tinge of yellow.
Pool tests say the following: CYA not accurate due to other levels
Tot Chlorine 3.3
Free Chlorine 0
total Alk. and adj are both 140
filter was cleaned on 6/4/13
Where do you suggest I start? How do I equate liquid bleach to what is recommended by the pool company? Should I drain some water out and start over?
Any help is greatly appreciated... had planned a pool day.. weather is great and we had to cancel... AGAIN!
