I am new here. My second summer as a pool owner and I have put $250.00 in pool store chemicals into the pool so far and it is still cloudy gray. Decided I wanted to take control of my pool and ordered the TF-100.
I have done some lurking but would love any advice...Numbers are as of this past hour...
FC - 10 PPM, CC - 1.5, TC - 11.5, CH 575 PPM, TA - 150, CYA - 30, C1 3 BR 6, PH 7.5
Pool was light green /cloudy last sunday the 22nd, I brushed and vaccumed, backwashed 2 times within an 8 hour period. Monday I added another 3lb of powder shock and have had the filter on 24 / 7 since...I backwashed the filter again on Wednesday 6/25 and again yesterday 6/29/ Have added 2 chlorine pucks to the skimmer in the past week.
Do I lower CH, maybe replace sand (I belive its 4-5 years old), add some DE to the skimmer, try a skimmer sock?
Thanks in advance for the help!
