We have used Soft Swim since we bought our pool 5 years ago. This will be our 6th season. Last year we had a real problem with cloudy water and had started seeing white mold. We started our chlorine conversion on Monday, May 4 with some lovely colors. We have been testing FC, adding bleach, brushing and vacuuming all week. Our pool is clear, but it is a lovely lime green. Is that part of the process? Last night we only lost 1ppm of FC, but we still had yellow gunk on the walls and bottom to clean up so I was sure we were not ready to add the CYA. I have a few questions:
1.Should the water be CRYSTAL clear before we change the sand again and add CYA to reach 30 ppm per instructions?
2. Then, after the CYA is added we keep the FC up to 15ppm until our CC's are 0.5 for two days in a row. Right? Then, we can balance our pool by the recommendations for SWG, add the salt and hook up the SWG. Is this the right process for us? (BTW, we have a AquaTrol RJ ready to install.)
Also, We have the TF-100 test kit.
