A bunch of friends/neighbors seem like we all put pools in this spring, and one friend told be about this website.
Naturally, the pool guy associated with the builder supposedly set everything up perfect--then we got a bunch of rain and our readings are off the deep end in a bad way.
Using AquaChek strips to test so trying to match the color as best we can, but current readings as of this morning appear to be:
What is driving us crazy is we can't seem to budge the numbers. Added 4 lbs of HDX "shock" (trichlor) over the past day and FC has not moved. After reading this website, scared to death of CYA and causing an unrecoverable chem level. So as new pool owners we're clearly out of our element and don't know what to do.
Any, ANY advice for a rookie pool family?
