Hi I'm not a new pool owner, pool is probably at least 20 years old, but for some reason, I've been dumping chemicals into this pool and it remains white and cloudy! I bought the TST kit because I felt the local pool place wasn't very accurate. I've opened my eyes in terms of my actual results being off. So far, I've corrected the alkalinity, pH, and started putting at least 3-4 lbs of chlorine in daily while running the filter at least 18 hours a day. Here's my numbers from today (and will be adding at least 4 more lbs of chlorine once the sun goes down):
I've read some of the other posts and that's what led me to getting the test kit and making some changes. My filter has been flushing with pressure about 10 and have washback/rinsed. Also vacuumed pool both with Dolphin and manually several times.
Thanks for any input you have!!! I've enjoyed reading this website! Thanks TFP!
