So this is my first year opening the pool. We have been going with what the pool store told us this year and the results are not nearly as fast as I expected, and becoming quite expensive.
I am currently waiting on my test kit, it should be here Friday at the latest.
I have also replaced the old sand filter with a new one due to leaks beyond repair, complete with new sand.
So far this week we have fed the pool:
2 jugs of pool first aid
25 lbs of soars ash
10lbs of alkalinity up
30 lbs of Chlor-brite
8 gallons of 6% bleach
Our FC is not going down as quick as it was, while our CCV remains high. Our current test kit until Friday only reads to 5ppm.
Here is a starting pic.
