Hi everyone!! This is my first post so I will start with a little background information. I have a 24' AG pool with a cartridge filter that I have been a slave to for the past 2 years. The pool store started us with baquacil at installation which we quickly discovered was a huge mistake. Last year we converted to chlorine which was a little better but we still had trouble with algae. Over the winter I found this forum and decided we would give this method a try.
So, 2 weeks ago I stood in the backyard looking at a very green pool a bit skeptical that "some bleach" would clean it up but I started pouring it in anyway. I didn't have a test kit so i was using left over test strips to test the best I could. A week later the water was cleaning up very nicely so I decided I better get serious about it and ordered the TF-100. My kit arrived this morning and I eagerly ran a full test on my almost crystal clear water.
Then tested the FC/CC again this evening...
I started adding borax to bring the PH up after the first test and added enough bleach to bring it back to shock level tonight to try to pass the overnight test. Besides bringing the CYA up some (the pool is in full sun all day) is there anything else I need to do? I think everything else is in range but I feel like I have to be missing something. It can't be this easy!!? Lol
