We had a SWG pool put in last spring, as new pool owners we had no clue what we were doing but managed to get through the summer with a clean trouble free pool. This fall and winter we started having some discoloration in the water. It never got bad but it had a slight green tint so I researched and found this place. I've read and learned a ton already and found it was a lack of chlorine that was probably causing my problems. I dropped a chlorine tab in the skimmer and the pool has gotten clear again. I also ordered a TF100 so I can start managing the pool properly, I did my first test today.
PH 8.2 we have a hot tub that waterfalls into the pool I added ~ 1pt of muratic to bring it back down
FC- 14 ppm
CC- 0 ppm
TA- 290 ppm
CH- ??? I performed this test but never got to blue water. I stopped added agent at 100 drops. I did go from red to clear with a blueish hint but I never got to a true blue colored water. We are on a well with very hard water. I haven't tested the well water but will.
Does anything else look reasonable? My TA was high but I expect that was due to the high Ph.
