My pool is in San Diego, CA. I did the treatment (1-1/2 lbs) late yesterday and let the pump run. I have an inground 20,000 gallon pool. This morning the water was cloudy white but it seemed to lighten the stains, but not sure. I came home and my pool is now light green.
I did my testing which I did start at 0 Clorine
My test shows now:
0 ppm chlorine
8.2 ppm ph
160 ppm alkalinity
Per instructions on my test kit, about 2.5 gallons of Muratic Acid should bring these down to the recommended range.
My question is:
Do I still need to let the pump run for another 6 days without adding muratic and chlorine to balance my pool, or can I begin balancing today?
