Really appreciate all the help here. We are in the process of opening a swamp, have ordered the recommended test because those test strips are useless, so we are testing at the pool store. Used the pool calculator to shock up to 14 (est) at night, have added CYA. Test results 24hours later:
We have vacuumed, backwashed, filter looks good. We will have both AM and PM samples tested tonight so that we can get a better idea of what is happening overnight. The water is blue, algae looks dead, but the water is very cloudy. The pool store wants us to use floc. Should we?
