My wife and I just moved into a new home and found the pool was left for us in the green condition. I know the chlorine must have ran out and the algae took over, so I bought a TF100 kit and took some samples, which are below.
FC = 0, the 870 powder didn't turn pink.
PH = 7.2
TA = 240
CH = 450
CYA = <20, I have no idea since I could see the black dot even though the tube was complete full to the top.
I know I have to SLAM to get rid of the algae, but from what I read on the forum, I need to get the PH, CYA and TA under control? I tried using the pool calc app on here, but I'm having some problems understanding how the numbers need to be inputted.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
