    Help! Our pool water is green.

    I’m so happy to have found this site! And so grateful to everyone for their kind, helpful and always prompt advice. Neither my husband or I have ever owned a pool before so we knew there would be a learning curve. This site and especially the forum have given much more help than the pool store...

    Help! Our pool water is green.

    Another quick question.....after I add the bleach and check the levels after an hour or so, do I check the CYA and FC or does the CYA remain a constant for now?

    Help! Our pool water is green.

    Ok, so we’ve gotten the pH down to 7.2-7.5 range. Our levels don’t even measure out on the SWG FC/CYA chart. Our FC is 1 and CYA is approx 25. Should we use the regular pool chart? Thanks.

    So, I’ve added MA x2, dosed per poolmath and the pH hasn’t lowered at all. Am I right in assuming the pH level could have been much higher than 8.2 since that’s the top number on the test? Do I just keep adding MA in small doses until the pH starts to go down? Thanks.

    Thank you. I’ve read the SLAMing process and ABCs of pool water chemistry over and over the past few days. It’s still like reading a foreign language to me. I’m just trying to reassure myself before dumping stuff into the pool and crossing my fingers that it works.

    Help! Our pool water is green.

    Ok. Thanks. So should we get the pH down first or just start putting bleach in? Thank you....total newbies here. And from what I’ve read, shut the SWG off while SLAMing, right?
