So I am new to the TFP forums and the BBB method, and I am excited to try it. We bought a house 1.5 yrs ago with a pool, and managed to keep it relatively clean last summer. Really had no clue what we were doing though. I just found this website, and want to try the suggestions. The pool was uncovered this winter (in Texas) and right now it looks like a dark green swamp. I read the article on cleaning a swamp and bought the TF100 kit. Today I am finally ready to get started on it. Here are my numbers:
I realize I need to fix the pH and CYA, and am planning on running to the store shortly to pick up some muriatic acid and enough stabilizer to raise the CYA to 20. I just put in the first round of bleach and after 30 mins my FC was 1.0 and CC was 5.5!!
Why is my CC so high? Is it just because of the ton of algae? How do I get it down? Do I keep adding more bleach? I will appreciate any advice.
