Hello to all. My name is Chris and I just joined up to this great site. Up til this point the pool store has done my sampling. Had enough of that so I picked up a LaMotte 2056. Im making the switch to chlorine and so far I think its going pretty good. Getting lots of goop out. My process started yesterday and its gone like this...
Closed pool for winter with Baquacil products.
Opened pool to clear water. Zero chemicals added. New sand.
11am Ph low added soda ash to get a 7.3 reading
Added 10 gal of 8% bleach pool went green/brown/to white
FCC=.80 -I think Im missing something here with my reading. Is this my true PPM after adding bleach??
Had to goto work but when I got home I did a full test
Water Clear. White Goop floating everywhere. Backwashed filter. Bed time

Backwash, Vac, Scrub pool. water clear except for white goop floating around. which I got a lot out.
Added 4 gal of bleach @ 10 am. pretty colors!
My main issue is getting my Fcc right. my readings are not where they should be unless im missing something? any help would be great.
