Okay, so I put Stabilizer(CYA) in several days ago and then 4 bags of Burn Out shock the next day(about 3 days ago now).
I have not added or done anything else since then, just checking the water with the PH strips.
I have tablets but don't want to create other problems by using them since they will apparently raise my CYA levels. ??
I also have algaeside but was told didn't need that either. Although we do live in a very humid area of the country...right at the coast if that makes a difference.
Okay, so with the PH strips everything looks in line. The CYA has never shown up that much though on them yet. The TC looked to be about 1ppm today and the FC looked to be about 1ppm also. Both slightly lighter/lower than yesterday. (we swam yesterday, last night and this morning)
I'm soooo confused on what I need to do but obviously the chlorine is going and needs to be replenished ( I think???). I do have the test kit coming today per FedEX so that will be helpful, if not confusing at first, I'm sure. I am just sooo worried something is going to start growing and I want the pool safe for the kids. (nothing funky growing and not too many chemicals with me being clueless) My husband is busy with our house (renovating) and work, etc, so this is my baby! He says go with whatever "system" I think is best.
How do I calculate how much bleach to put in? (17,000+ gal, AG 27ft pool)
BTW, the water is sparkling and crystal clear....and I'd like to keep it that way!!
