Hello all, new to the forum.
My pool is covered and I want to open it this weekend. I tested the water under the cover with my TF100:
I used the pool calculator to figure out how much of what needs to be added so no worries there.
The water is a bit murky and there is a coating of algae on the bottom. I want to SLAM but don't know how to proceed with having a zero CYA reading. It is my understanding conditioner can take a week or more to fully disolve. I will need two 121oz 8.25% bottles of bleach just to get to 10, I don't want to throw a hundred $$ worth of bleach at the pool and have it burn up in a matter of minutes.
I have 50 pounds of those 3" slow disolve chloring tabs, should I add to the pool during the slam process to bring up the CYA level, then worry about adding conditioner later?
Please advise, i'm a bit confused.
