Hi. I've just purchased a Taylor K-2006 that should be here in a week. In the mean time, I still only have my basic OTO test kit.
The pool was green and chlorine levels were almost 0. I've added a total of 17 lbs of cal-hypo in the past week. Last night seemed to push the levels enough to kill the algae because the green is gone today. The pool still isn't clear but there is nothing floating.
I'm wondering what I should/can do now while I wait on the K-2006. I would hate to let it get out of control again. I don't have reliable readings on anything right now besides that my OTO kit says PH is between 7.2 - 7.8 and the chlorine is off the charts. I can say that I added CYA about a month ago based on pool store recommendations, so CYA should be some > 0.
I appreciate any advice.
