On my way to work I pass through two little towns, Wabbaseka first, then Altheimer. I will leave you to figure out that LA (Lower Arkansas) joke.
On to my problem. I have had small pools for twelve years. Mostly I have had no trouble. I have always used pucks. Reading on here for several years, getting a test kit, and testing my water near the end of summer last year, my CYA was totally out of sight. Would not register. We drain most years because of a heavy leaf load so I think, no problem. I will just start with TFP this year. I finished out last year with bleach adding about two cups a day which doesn't make sense since the CYA was so high.
This year, we drained and filled the pool. I thought, no CYA, (I tested it.) so made a trip to Wally World for some shock. Bad mistake. My one bag of shock (calcium hypochlorite)turned the pool cloudy. Since then, I have been using bleach to try to clear it up. No luck. Still cloudy. Below are my latest numbers taken at 7:00 PM.
We added two pounds of CYA Monday. I checked it today even though it hasn't been a week. It registers 50. We bought one of the little SWG's to try this year. It is plumbed, but I have not started using it yet.
I am figuring my pool to be 6500 gallons. I have been raising my chlorine trying to get it to clear up. Went to shock level last night. May not be high enough. First I figured for CYA of 40 because that is what we added to the pool
Any help appreciated. I have been writing all the numbers down, so have earlier test results. I was aiming for shock level of 20. Only had 28 ounces of bleach for this morning. Can't remember what Pool Math called for, but it wasn't enough.
I will add pictures as soon as I figure out how again. Wabbaseka's Disease strikes again.
