Here are my levels:
Calcium Hardness 130
Inground Gunite Pool I believe 30k gallons. I am not exactly sure how to measure to take in to account the ratio of shallow to deep. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
I have a few additional questions
I been trying to clear up the pool that I opened last weekend. The pool was a total swamp when I opened the cover.
I have been adding bleach and a few bags of left over shock from last year. I have been running the filter 20-24 hours a day.
I have not been too conderned with the ph levels. I was just trying to kill all the "green mess!" So far the fool is getting a bit clearer and much of the swap is gone. I can now see the bottom of the shallow end...well most of it!
1) was this a mistake (ignoring the other levels?)
2) What should I do right now? I added about 7 gallons of bleach tonight and the one remaining bag of powder shock that I had.
3) I know I need to raise my Hardness. Is it ok to wait until I kill all of the green and get rid of the algea? I already have some plaster that has "flaked of the wall" This started two years ago but looks progressively worse. I am hoping to keep the pool going this year and possible do a new plaster job in the fall. Any suggestions on this issue would be appreciated as well!
