So, my test kit arrived and I've managed to get a few things sorted in my little pool. One thing is the cloudy water is a persistent problem. Here are my latest test results from this morning:
FC - 3.5
CC - .5
PH - 8
TA - 110
CH - 0
I am now using Hy Clor Liquid Chlorine which has 125gms/litre (12.5% available chlorine) - 800ml was added last night, the recommended daily dose is 200ml
I did add 500 ml of Hy Clor liquid stabilizer to up the CYA - (active constituent is Monosodium Cyanurate monohydrate) The recommended dose for 25000 litres was 2.5 litres, my pool holds approximately 10000 hence the 500ml.
I'm going to add another does of liquid chlorine now and see if that helps. My filter is running constantly from 10am when the sun hits the pool right round until 7ish in the evening. I do have it covered to stop stuff falling in it but the cover is a mesh and sunlight still gets through.
Any help is appreciated.
