Hi guys, new to the pool ownership game. Have been trying to balance my pool for the past week and so far unsuccessful. I am following the BBB method after mistakenly following advice of Lowe's and shocking my pool with Aqua Chem Super Shock Plus.
I have since reshocked based on the pool calculator and added 5 gallons of bleach last night (9pm). So here are the readings utilizing a Taylor K-2006 FAS-DPD complete kit as of noon today.
FC = 9.2
PH = 8.0
TA = 40
CH = 50
CYA = 25
Pool Temp - 72 F
I have a 22x34, 24000 gallon IG Gunite kidney shaped pool with 2 skimmers and 2 returns. The depth of the pool is three feet to seven feet ten inches. It is approximately 20 yrs old (purchase with house this October). The pool equipment is in good working order and I have backwashed the Sand filter and primed the pump. The filter has been online for 48hrs after shutting off earlier this week.
My Equipment is:
Hayward Pro Series sand filter with a multi-port
1.5 HP Hayward super pump and motor
Hayward H Series 250,000 BTU natural gas heater (currently offline)
