My pool actually never really cleared up last year. It's 17,000 gallons and is green/cloudy. I have read through the SLAM procedure and I have bought a proper test kit (Taylor) and tested the water. My current values are:
I do know that CYA is part of my problem - years of using pucks. I am no longer using them or granulated chlorine, I am using liquid from the pool store and bleach.
According to the chart, I need to get my shock chlorine level to 28, which I think is going to take a LOT of chlorine. I can't seem to find any chart that indicates even a ball park at how much I might need. I do have 4 (5 gallon) containers available. Is it just trial and error until I get it to 28? Any other tips before I start?
