    Trying to help a friend open their pool

    17,000 gallon IG vinyl

    FC = 0
    CC = 0( from 0 FC I guess? After testing FC, adding the 5 drops of R-0003, it did not change the color)
    PH = 8.2
    TA = 130
    CYA = 20

    Pool has green tint, can't see bottom. First steps? Slam process to get FC up and try to clear up the green tint? or do we address something else first?

    Thanks!

    I agree with Woodyp. PH over 8.0 is very high and needs to be addressed.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    I agree drop pH, start slamming, but you may want to double check that CYA as you go and boost it up a bit, but not too much until you finish the SLAM
