I've inherited an ingound vinyl liner pool with overflowing spa. total volume 19,500 Gallons, Jandy 1.5HP Pump, New Hayward sand filter (24 gallon), Using TF Test Kit. I've been to multiple pools stores and everyone has a differing opinion on what to do to balance the water. Seems like a great way to procure $500+ from a poor pool owner every year at opening. I live in Chicagoland and we had a BRUTAL winter. The mesh loop lock cover is a nice safety feature but also a nice siv.
So far, with the expertise of pool store, I've put about 40 pounds of granule shock and 19 gallons of liquid shock. Also about 31 pounds of alkalinity increaser. My TF Test kit #'s are:
PH = 7.2
Alkalinity = 240 ppm
FC = 45
CC = 0
CYA = 70
I need to have this water balanced and clear in the next 4 days... PLEASE HELP!!!
Thank you in advsnce
