Hi there, Due to work I have not been able to get the pool open this spring. In late June I was going to start, but the motor on my pump was bad, so I had to order a new one and find the time to replace it. Well that finally got done.
On July 4th, I finally started trying to clear up my swamp.
My pool is about 30,000 gal, in ground, Lazy L, 3 skimmers + floor drain, 4 returns, Hayward Sand Filter and 1.5 HP pump.
So, here I am a week and a half later and the pool is still a light cloudy green color.
I have been keeping the Chlorine up around 24 ppm for the last 1.5 weeks - the lowest it has dropped is down to around 10. I am using 8.25% bleach and adding the amount recommended by the Pool Calculator.
My most recent (5 mins ago) test results for PH is 8.2 and TA is 70. I know the PH is high and the TA is low,
I am thinking about using floc to clear this thing up, but wanted to see what you guys suggested first.
What really blows, is if I don't get this thing clean soon, I am leaving for vacation the last weekend of this month and all my time and energy will have been wasted because I will be back to square one when I return.
Any help and input is appreciated.
