so i posted yesterday about the cloudiness. Its not due to high CH level. here is my test results:
FC: 3.5 Goal is 6.
CYA: should still be 50. last tested 2 weeks ago. tested twice. No significant water change. So im still going with 50 for now.
Passed OCLT last night. Pool lost 1ppm.
But it still looked dirty and murky. thought maybe it was dirt. but it never settled. Been running pump on high all morning.
Finally, I said the heck with it, and mixed up the two bags of Quick Shock the pool company gave me with the pool in a bucket and tossed it in to see what would happen. Within about 10 minutes, the brownish murkiness started to fade to blue.
needless to say, SLAM process started. I added 2 bottles of 8.25% since im not sure how much chlorine that quick shock **** has. im gonna wait an hour and test FC. Im going to go ahead and target my FC level for mustard algae because I dont know what the deal is.
test results good. passed OCLT.
what the heck is going on?
this ticks me off. i have never had to SLAM with the TFPC method. and I stay on top of it.
I must have dropped the ball somewhere. I would like to know where so that I can prevent it in the future.
