Curious what happened after this point. Our pool has looked like this all summer and still never improved past this point. We have used the bbb method since last year and even last year once it turned blue it was never clear. We haven't been able to swim all summer and I am ready to shut it down and get rid of it.
Tested this morning after shocking last night with bleach as we have been slamming for a week.
FC 7 down again from 15, adding more bleach this a.m.
PH 8 (adding muriatic acid, we replaced half the pool water last week because the stabilizer was reading 40 and the pool school recommended replacing 43% of water)
Using Taylor full test kit with DPD powder test which we have been using religiously.
29,000 gallon above ground pool 33' round 54" high. DE in filter which was replaced last year.
We having been shocking with bleach only, no algecide or other extra chems except stabilizer at opening and muriatic acid for PH adjustment per pool calculator.
I have read and re read the pool school and everything on this site to find an answer.
I would love one good day in the pool!
