We bought a house last fall with a pool that hasn't been taken care of in over a year. I've been following the steps outlined on the forum for clearing a swampy pool. We are on day 3, pool is now a light minty green and hasn't changed much in appearance in the last 24 hrs.
Here are the latest test results taken today after sunset:
FC: 8.5 (added 2 qts, 3 oz bleach as per pool math to return it to shock level (10)
CYA:0 had this confirmed at a pool store (put stabilizer in a sock in skimmer on the 1st day)
We took the whole filter apart before adding any chemicals and did a 3 hr soak in TSP. Been backwashing 2-3 times a day since then.
My question is.....
Should I been seeing more improvement in my water? Am I doing the right things?
Thank you, nervous 1st time pool owner
