    I see a typo on the FC. And CC is too high. But keeping FC above 15 for a few days should eliminate the CC.

    225 ppm FC is WAY too high. I imagine you have a white liner now, since you've bleached it. A very Peter Griffin thing to do, I might add.

    Check these videos, and see if you are doing the same.

    I'm betting you are forgetting the decimal point when multiplying for your FC.

    As Richard said, if your FC was really that high, you would at least have a bright white liner, that won't last much longer. How many 55 gallon drums of bleach did you add?

    Yes gone from cloudy green unable to see low end to quasi crystal clear overnight
    I gotta say the wealth of info in the forums and the people who respond to the posts are amazing i cant thank all of you enough. I am sufficiently impressed by how little effort i think it will take to maintain the pool without the pool store ripping me off

    Re: Family guy

    Just as an FYI, PH testing at FC level's above 10 is not accurate, so no need to keep testing it until your FC level drops.
