I have a vinyl 10700 gallon above ground pool. Had been a good summer, but now it's terribly green. numbers after using my k-2006 FAS-DDP test kit are as follows.
PH=well below 7.0 took 20 drops to raise color to 7.4
cya=below 30 as filled tube completely and still can see dot in test bottle (about out of reagents too now)
Salt level reads as almost 3780 which drives me nuts cuz my swg says low salt and it wont run now.
anyway I've read so many of these forums and tried the slam but nothing working as my TA and PH are jacked so havent added bleach or anything all day. it's in direct sun..had been putting in bleach last couple days to no avail, but had forgotten to get TA and PH right along with CYA.
I have added just over 3 lbs of CYA today and a gallon of muriatic acid, and then a box of baking soda 4 lbs, and two 76 oz boxes of borax (like an idiot) read a column wrong i'm guessing. anyway TA had gone down but after borax naturally now its back at 125 and PH still low. Just started to aerate hoping PH will climb up on its own now, but wondering how long before i can get bleach going again. DAYS? hours?
