    Intex 15x48 SWG clear water - bad testing numbers

    Pool seasonal. Been up for a month with clear water. 3 bags walmart salt and intex SWG 3 hours at night, plus separate pump, filter, and heater. On test strips, FC usually 1-2, the above results are from the proper test kit. Testing at 7pm - SWG runs at 10pm each night. What should I add first? Why does water remain so nice?

    Added 3 cups cyanuric acid, 3 cups baking soda, and 2.5 cups 6% bleach. SWG running 4 hours tonight.
