Just found the forum and got a Taylor k-2006 today. The pool is not mine yet, so at best I can get to it once a day for a while. It will have to stay on tablets for a month or so until I'm living in it.
Pool is 17,000 gal, white plaster, cartridge filter.
Dark green, hundreds of tadpoles, some frogs.
Can kind of see first step in low end with sunlight
Got as many tadpoles frogs out as I could
Brushed with stainless brush
3lbs of Yellow Out
9 bags of 73% CalHypo
5 Gallons of Leslie's 10-12% liquid Chlorine
Test PH with Jungle labs test strip (after all chems were in, Before I left, I took a water sample home with me) 7.9-8.0
Greyish, can sort of see floor of low end 20 min before it was dark out
1lb Yellow Out
3 bags CalHypo
5 Gal Liquid Chlorine
Dark blue deep end, lighter blue low end very cloudy, cant see light or drain.
Take water sample to bring home, from at least a foot deep
Vacuum, can see all of low end, cant see the rest.
5 gal Liquid chlorine
Brought water sample home (from before vacuuming and liquid chlorine) here are the results:
CYA 0 It barely got cloudy?
I forgot to mention, I also have a floater in the pool with thrichlor tablets.
I'm guessing I should add soda ash or Borax? Any preference? Any other suggestions?
