I'm new to this site, but there is alot of great information. For background, I have a 15 x 30 x 52 inch deep oval, roughly 13,200 gallons by the pool calculator. Seems like I've been doing this yo yo dance between the white pool, green pool and corresponding trips to the pool store. Our pool has a milky green haze. I cant see two feet into it. We have been shocking like crazy to break the cholorine lock. I shocked again this morning with two gallons. My readings as of this morning are;
Cyanuric Acid 59
I added two gallons of shock this morning per the stores direction to break the lock. Pool looks the same.
The Alk has been jumping up and down, we follow the pool store direction, muriatic acid to drop it, Alk up to raise it, Muriatic acid to drop again? Seems to me that 's a sign of guess work, not actually knowing what to do.
Yesterdays readings were;
Alk 0 ppm (yes zero)
CYA 32 ppm
Last night I added 14 pounds of Alk up; after the store recommended 26. How can the Hardness change by adding PH up?
Ay recommendations; we are close to being beyond frustrations and just taking it down. It's going to be in the 90's the next few days and I am very afraid of what it will do.
