I'm part way thru slamming my pool - it was cloudy because of too much CYA from what I can figure.
The CYA was at 180 and I've gotten it down to70- I know that's high but I couldn't drain the pool any more for fear of drying out the new Gunite.
So I started with a CYA of 70 and reading the CYA chart I need FC of 28. My FC yesterday started at 32 then 30 and now tests at 28 ( where it should be according to the chart)I've been able to keep it there. My concern is when I test for cc it always stays the same color. I use the FAS/DPD chlorine drop test. I thought the cc was the "dirty chlorine". If the FC is dropping then why is there no cc registering?
I know my pool water level has dropped-could a leak in the plumbing be to blame for the dropping of FC?
Also, the water is still cloudy- I've been brushing and sweeping like I'm supposed to- but the pool color hasn't changed to clear either.
Should I just keep the chlorine at 28 until the water clears up?
Maybe it is the filter after all?
