Can't believe i've had a pool for over 20 years and just found this site. Pool is 28000 gallons with a vinyl liner. My problem is my FC reading is pretty much 0. Tested for ammonia and it's dark green which states 8 plus.
I just dumped in 15 gallons of 8.25% bleach I purchased from Walmart. Had a free chlorine reading for a bit but never came close to looking like a SLAM reading. Tested ammonia again after adding chlorine and it might have dropped a bit but still shows a 8 + reading.
Money wise it's probably a wash whether I keep adding bleach or drain and fill the pool. My water cost's a good bit here. Basically i'm looking for an answer to which way is going to get the job done faster to get the ammonia reading down to a respectable level.
Appreciate any advice,
I'm guessing this is the correct forum for this request. If not let me know and I'll move it.
