So we have had our pump/filter running for just over 24 hours now that we have the water level up.
Here is our history http://www.troublefreepool.com/threa...nt-help-needed!!!
Last night we dumped in 3 gallons of 8.25% bleach since the equipment was running smoothly. We did it rather blindly, but wanted to start making some headway. We had not tested the water first.
Tonight I went out and got a sample of pool water. Here are the results with the TF-100 test kit.
FC .5 or less
CYA -20 (dot never did disappear)
The appearance of the water is really green, but I don't really see any algae in the water. I know there is a lot of sediment on the bottom and we will be throwing in Wanda the Whale pool cleaner tomorrow to see if that will start the process of cleaning up the bottom.
So, I have fiddled around with Pool Math and I am not sure what I should put in for my goals. I told it to use the recommended levels from TFP. But when there is a recommended range, how do I know what my individual target should be. I know my location and the sunlight on the pool will have an effect. Also, I don't know if I need to slam or not.
When I put in the above info Pool Math is telling me to add 413 oz of 8.25% bleach, 44 oz of muriatic acid, 68 oz of baking soda, 469oz of calcium chloride and 269oz of stabilizer. Does this sound correct? Do we need to target and work on one thing at a time? I think the PH will drop on its own it is probably high from all of the water we have hauled in and pumped in to the pool with a 2 inch hose.
So, what do you think?
