I am hoping for some guidance; I just had my pool opened Wednesday, I cleaned it the past couple of days and then had the water tested (I did buy the recommended test kit but just this once brought it to pool store). My alkalinity was at 0--the pool store tried getting me to buy $70 worth of stuff but I did not-----I added baking soda using the pool calculator for amount;
Now my water is SUPER cloudy, is that normal for awhile?
I used baking soda that is fresh burst, was that a mistake?
When/how do I add bleach as my chlorine?
Do you not use shock at all using the BBB method?
I am feeling overwhelmed right now, appreciate any help/advice/guidance!
