Hi, just bought a house with a small pool. The old owner was using pucks in a hayward chlorine cl220. I stopped using them and removed them from the cl220. I've cleaned the filter too. The pool water was off from day one using test strips, so I bought a K-2006. I'm trying to use the BBB method, but having lots of trouble. 6000gal fiberglass pool. So, onto my results and hopefully you guys can help me start fixing it. Thanks in advance so much! I spent $140 on chemicals weeks ago when my pool started turning green, and what a waste.
