    Bet2cu


    Hello! So I started tinkering with the BBB method last year with much luck. So this year I went all out and ordered the taylor k-2006.So I've been trying to understand where my results were and where they should be. Now I feel like I have over analyzed, if that's possible. Make a long story short.... my pool is light green now.
    I believe my big issue is that my cya is 100.
    fc:13
    cc:0
    ph:7.6
    ta:140
    Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,

    Welcome to tfp, bet2cu

    When you say light green is it clear with tinted water or cloudy?

    A 100 in the cya test can actually be higher. You may want to do a dilution with 1/2 pool water and 1/2 cya free water (tap water is fine for this). Then repeat the test and multiply the result by 2.

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    Welcome to TFP!

    You will need to replace water to get that CYA down. If you are using tablets to chlorinate your pool, stop using those now and switch to bleach. Your tablets are driving your CYA up.

    first pool turned a little cloudy. Added 12% liquid chlorine, and bleach 2 days later(price of liquid chlorine has gone up) and now I can see through the water but it is a shade of light green, like it almost wants to just at that point to turn blue. I can add a picture tomorrow.
    thanks,
