    I'm so lost with this algae Crud! HELP!

    Not sure, the tester showed it was high. 4 cups of muratic acid and I'm doing much better. Green is gone. Still a little cloudy but it's improving quickly This update was a few days ago. It's perfect now! Just needed a pH fix

    I'm so lost with this algae Crud! HELP!

    That's what i buy when it's available but we are still limited if it's available. The pool is looking less green today. I have the PH back under control. All of the chemicals looks like they are in range except the chlorine which is high on purpose. I can almost see the bottom of the pool and...

    Cal hypo Lowe's now has Clorox shock stuff. I didn't think that was advised. If there is something else that is carried by Lowe's please do let me know. Last time I was there, it looked like it had been robbed. I'm in a hotspot called Texas so that may be a factor. Thanks!

    I'm also using the jumbo tab from pool mate. I was using Leslie's before and ran out so I went to Amazon. That weekend that it happened we were gone a little longer than normal so I put in 2 or 3 tabs in the floater. I took all out but 1 when I got home thinking that it added CYA more than I...

    I'm using pentair CYA test and a taylor K-1004 to test. I think taylor is recommended by you guys but correct me if i'm wrong.

    Tc is in the 5s, FC is hard because after adding 5 drops of 3 it's now purple so please let me know about that. Cya 55ish Ph is high around 8.2. it wasn't last week so that's a problem. Total alkalinity is 110 Ph - just added 4 cups of muratic acid so i'll check those levels shortly

    I admit that i didn't initially get the deluxe version of the testing kit but then bought a standalone kit just for CYA. Are you thinking the chlorine levels are low? Thanks for the quick response!

    SO this is the first time owning a pool. Started out the summer doing great never having any issues with chemical levels or anything really. The water always looked so crisp and clean, very clean! So we went on a trip for 3 days and came back to strips of algae on the bottom. I started with high...

    That's crazy that all of us have this same issue. This was all of 2 weeks old when it started not allowing me to do anything but off and on for the hours initially set.
