Hey everyone, just want to say the site is great, heard about it from a friend and am hoping it will help make my life easier as a pool owner. I am new to the pool game and hope i can master it at some point cuz i'm confuzled at the moment. well here are some numbers I have, just want verification that i'm on the right track. Thanks in advance to anyone who chimes in, you are greatly appreciated!
the pool is 15,000 gallons and ranges in depth from 3 feet to 6 ft.
numbers are as follows.
numbers derived from leslie test kit
the pool is a green mess. pump is working, filter material used is sand. Although I have had to backflush a couple of times because of high pressure spikes. I looked at the pool calc and it says my shock value should be at 10 for fc. cya is on the low side of 30 to 50. ch, ta need to rise pretty significantly, and ph needs to drop a bit. its the first day of opening and to get to 10 seems to require alot of clorox. like 7 96 ounce bottles. sound right? after putting some chlorox in about 3 so far to get my numbers so far, im just wondering if i'm on the right track. algae is horrible. can i expect alot of backflushing? do I focus on all my numbers or are there some i should concentrate more on? Pump should be on skimmer, main drain, or combo of both? any thing else i should do? any advice will be greatly appreciated. I hope I'm on the right track
