Hi all !
I'm needing some help with a couple of things and verification on what I'm thinking of doing.
Numbers as follows with TF -100
ph - 7.8
FC - 1.5
TA - 60
CH - 75
CYA - ? slightly cloudy but still see dot fine even at top of cylinder.
Water is crystal clear with no signs of algae, small amount of debris in deep end. I will vac this out. Had planned to do so today anyway.
Last bleach (10%) put in day before yesterday to raise Cl to 5ppm per pool calculator, presuming I still had CYA at 30.
Days have been hot and sunny in mid to high 90's so expecting some Cl loss.
CYA test and I don't like each other. I ordered CYA standard test solution today to see if I'm wrong or something else. I also ordered new reagent and cylinder.
I estimated 10ppm CYA in pool so pool calc said add 4lbs 14oz. Got it in pool now. Granular, 100%, in pantyhose in skimmer basket. I know won't show up for about a week.
I used CYA of 30 to determine my chlorine level for shock since that is my target and I need to get started.
Do I have your approval so far?
I have only used bleach since last year and with exceptional results but, I do have 3-4 bags of cal hypo 73%. I know it makes water cloudy.
If I use it one time, then continue the shock process with bleach, will the bleach clear up the cloudiness?
I'm off to brush the pool like crazy and hope I dislodge whatever is growing in it all of a sudden!!!
