I had difficulty maintaining the TFP method when I resumed work after summer break and am regretting it as my pool is NASTY now!
We had a major pollen drop and are in the middle of acorn drop right now. We also had a few major rains. I added two bags of shock, some Alkalinity Up b/c my alkaline was low and backwashed.
I have been using Triclor lately, but will go back to bleach when I have the time to do an OCLT.
Current chem levels are as follows:
FC 11 Has been as high as 18 after adding the shock. Coming down slowly as shock was added Saturday and today is Wednesday.
My pool is green. When I brush it green powder floats around the pool.
