I have a huge problem with my pool. It is green and the chemistry is way off. I had an extended hospital stay and now I am faced with getting the pool back to a balanced state. I had my wife using pucks while I was away.
FC = 39.5 Measured using the FAS-DPD Taylor test kit. 10ML from pool 2 dippers of R-0870, 79 drops of R-0871 reagent.
PH = 7.6
CYA = Could be as high as 200, hard to measure past the 100 level.
CC = 1
TA = 170
I would rather not drain 2/3 of the pool due to the high cost of water in my area. I purchased 8 gallons of bleach but am holding off until I have a better strategy from a "pro" here. I also purchased "yellow out" but have not used it yet. I have two boxes of 76oz Mule team borax on hand also.
I have an 18,000 gunite in ground pool. Hayward C3000 cartridge filter.
What are my options and detailed steps to get the pool back from the algae and CYA monster.
Thank you in advance
P.S. If it makes any difference, my neighbor's pool is worst than mine with algae. Would that effect my pool?
