Hello all after winter break! I may have messed up my pool.
I did not cover it this fall and winter so I have a bunch of leaves in the bottom. I have been dipping them out and nearly have them all. We got the pump hooked back up today and started shocking to get rid of the green water.
Two people adding bleach without each others knowledge is why the FC is so high.
So here are my first numbers: FC- 45 , ph- way above 8.2(the color is bright fushia), TA- 50, CC-4
I did not do a calcium hardness or CYA test yet. How in the world do I get the ph down? I have added a full container of ph down powder and 16 oz of liquid muriatic acid. I checked the ph before the chemicals and about an hour after adding it.
Forgot to add the water temp is 60.
