I am a newbie and have been SLAMing my pool for 9 days. It has gone from nasty green to cloudy blue, but has been stuck at cloudy blue for 3 days. We have cleaned the sand filter and added DE. I am still losing 3ppm consistently over night, so I know I am not done. We have dismantled the ladder steps and thoroughly scrubbed and cleaned them as well as taken the light out.
As of this morning: FC 13.5, CC 0.5, pH 7.2 TA 130, CYA 35/40
I added 2 bottles of chlorine (96oz 10%) to raise FC to 16/17
How often I should check CYA? Does it change a lot? Because then I would need to be more vigilant on my FC count.
Also, I bought the Taylor 2006 kit and I will need to purchase another bottle of Titrating Reagent R-0871-A. Any recommendations on where to get it, and should I go with a large bottle? Does it keep from year to year?
Thank you for any help on the above questions, as well as advice on how to get it sparkly and ready for Labor Day!!
