Opened Monday - Loop Loc cover so of course green water.
Green gone. Working to today so couldn't stay one top of it hourly.
Water is just not clear. Can see drains barely in 7' deep in. Assume I just need to keep at shock level and watch FC loss hourly.
Readings: CYA=35 therefore target 14 for shock process. CC=0.0; TA=110; CH=190; pH=7.6. Using TFT100 kit of course.
Hourly through mid afternoon seemed to lose 2.0 FC per hour. Calculator had me putting in about 75 oz 12% bleach per hour.
Unfortunately, about 4pm ran out of the drops for the chlorine power test. Already ordered replacements from TFT kits but have to wing it until then.
The pool was only losing 1.0 overnight dusk to dawn every day this week.
I'm leaving for two days (Indy 500). Left the wife and kids these instructions:
8am: Add 1 gallon.
Every hour: Add 75 oz.
8pm: Add 1 gallon.
24,000 gallon pool.
Maybe the drops arrive tomorrow and we can test.
However, if there is some other way to clear up the cloudiness quickly I'm all ears.
Started using TFP method last year, but had already opened it and bombed it with shock (with clarifier) so not use to it taking days to clear up cloudiness.
That said, pool never had nicer water or was easier to take care of (with 40% less filter run time!) than it was last year!
