So I stay home from work today so I can take my wife to get surgery. She gets up early and lets the dog out back. I get up a couple hours later and the dog has not only dug up a plant but threw lots of soil into the pool in the process. I centainly didn't intend to take a swim this morning but now I was thinking I had to. It wasn't to bad since the water temp was 81 last evening. My first thought was "look at all that organic material in the pool" and my second thought was "oh **** I wonder if there's any fertilizer in there?". I think I recall that fertilizer is a big problem in a pool. Will look that up later.
For cleanup I manually skimmed the pool and then jumped in and netted what I could from the bottom. There was still lots of dirt down there. I then cranked up the IntelliFlo to about 2500RPM and turned on Bismo (that's what my kids named the Polaris 280). After about two hours the dirt pile is getting smaller but the water is not crystal clear anymore. I'm sure this is due to suspended particles stirred up by Bismo. Bismo got so full he could not remain upright so I emptied his stomach and started him back up again. I also cleaned out the pump and skimmer baskets. Later today I will hose off the carts.
I did a full test last night and my numbers were
FC - 4.0
CC - 0
TA - 90 I know a bit high
CH - 250
CYA - 75
Temp - 81
Two hours after the incident my CL is still 4. I plan on keeping a close watch on this. Anything else I should be doing?
