I have a 20'x4' (9500 gallon) vinyl pool that I opened about a month ago. I have been adding 84 oz. a day of bleach to keep the chlorine up, due to 0=CYA, Ph=7.2, TA=80. Sunday I put in 4lbs of stabilizer from Wal-Mart (in a sock and massaged it all day). Monday some friends gave us a little bucket of super chlorinating tablets and my wife put 2 tablets in the skimmer. Today I went out to test the water (HTH 6-way test kit) and the TC showed to be orange instead of yellow and PH=7.2. When I tried to test TA it only turned a light pink at 80ppm, never turned red. I then tested CYA and it was up to 90ppm. After reading the bucket of super chlorinating tablets I found out it has stabilizer in them also.
Do I have way too much chlorine in the pool causing it to be orange instead of yellow?
Will having too high CYA cause my readings to be off?
What should I do at this point, 56% water change?
Should I stop using the tablets since they have stabilizer in them?
