I have done my best to do some upfront research on some of the issues I'm encountering, but am still unsure of the appropriate steps to take. Here are the details of my pool:
In ground / Vinyl
16 x 32 / approx 20,000 gallons
Filter psi currently around 13
Water color is clear and slightly blue
I did an at home test and confirmed the results by having the local pool store test as well:
My problem is that I cannot seem to get the FC up at all, much less maintain at a level of 3. All I have done since I moved in (3 days ago) is give it some heavy doses of leslies chloro brite by broadcasting it into the pool. I've left the filter on pretty much 24/7. The woman at the pool store told me to put 3 of the 3" tabs in a floater and that should solve my problem. The pool gets plenty of sun, but we've also had some rain.
It would be really nice to have it balanced for a house warming party we are having this Sunday. Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance!
