Split from Did I jump the gun . Zea3
IFunny, I'm worried I jumped the gun too. Starting up a pool and for the first 4-5 days there was basically zero chlorine in the pool. I was planning to use trichlor pucks until CYA got up, but chlorine and CYA remained zero for 4 days. Then I added a gallon of CYA and started using bleach. I calculated the gallon of CYA should raise it to 20 (which it appears to have). But then I read the fine print saying that adding CYA could change the pigment in the pebble finish. I think it is ok as long as you keep the pump running, which it has been and is on 24/7. Anyway - I have been adding bleach and the water cleared up really nice, but it is still hard to keep the chlorine level up. I'm not sure my chlorinator is actually working.
