    Fixing my Mess from what ive learned! (Updated)

    I wanted to show you guys what I can do with what I have learned on this board.

    So had a change in employers and couldn't afford chemicals for about 3 weeks. Bills before luxuries in my eyes. Before today i was guessing with my chemicals to keep my water clear.

    Today I had some cash so I went and purchased a Taylor K1003.(All I could afford ) Then went and purchased 13 Gallons of 8.25% Bleach. Now time to SLAM!

    (Day 1)
    I started with this:


    I started by cleaning my filter, then lowering my Ph to 7.2 with Acid.
    At 2 Hours and 3 Gallons of Bleach TotalBrushed the Whole pool)

    (Cleaned filter cause it Raised from 7psi to 17psi)

    At 3.5 Hours and 4 Gallons of Bleach TotalBrushed the Whole Pool)

    (Cleaned filter cause it Raised from 7psi to 17psi)

    At 5 hours its to dark to take a photo but I added one more gallon of Bleach to make it 5 Gallons Total for the night.
    Filter 9psi to 12psi will clean it again in the morning. Gave the Whole pool a brushing before calling it a night.

    (Day 2)
    Woke up and found my FC to be 0 and my TC to be 0.5. Found my filter at 22 psi. Pulled the filter and cleaned it, Brushed the whole pool, and added 3 gallons of bleach to bring it back to shock.

    At 21 hours and 8 Gallons of bleach totalStill Cloudy)


    I will update this as I complete my journey. v

    Wow, that seems like very quick progress. I guess the fact that you have a cartridge filter helps speed it along. Good job, and keep it up.

    Cloudy Pool? 1) Order test kit. 2) Follow SLAM
    New to TFPC? Read Pool School a few times, then post questions. PoolMath will help with chemical additions.
