Please do not hi-jack another's thread....here is your own thread.
Our pool is in Cancun, Mexico. It is an in-ground with a flat bottom and uniform depth of 4' 6". It is oval shaped. It is made from concrete block with stucco and then ceramic tiles. It has 2 bottom drains and 2 skimmer pots. Our make up water is pumped from a cenote/well on our property that has a submersible pump in it. We have had an inordinate amount of rain this season. Four weeks ago it rained for 6 days straight accounting for 35% of our total annual rainfall. I had to drain down the water level about 4-5 inches 3 times to keep the skimmers intakes at the correct level. Otherwise they would be completely submerged. Unfortunately the rains have continued with 3 more days of constant rains. Our pool water is cloudy. This is the first time in 5 years we have had this problem. Here are my test results:
Water temp 83F
Air temp 81F
When performing the FC test when I put the heaping spoon full of R-870 powder into the cylinder it does not turn pink. It turns dark grey. When adding the R-871 per the instructions in never turns completely clear. When continuing on by adding 5 drops of R-0003 The solution does not change from the dark grey. So I put 0 in both results because I don't know how to interpret it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
