Hi. Newbie here. Details:
AGP Vinyl quick set 15' round 42"high, about 5000gal
cartridge filter, well water (hard hard water)
filled one week ago, live in central wisconsin
would like to use the BBB method. I have been using your handy calculator ( LOVE IT ) and do have the pool 'balanced' test today:
FC 1, CYA 50, pH 7.4, TA 150, TOTAL HARDNESS 200
The water started yellow and clear, I tested, added bleach, borax and CYA and plugged in the filter. By yesterday ( day # 8 ) after testing each day and adding as needed the water started to clear, remained yellow. My 10 year old jumped in ( H2O temp 66, air temp 72 YIKES ) Now today back to cloudy yellow. We haven't had any rain for 2 days and the # look balanced so now what? I have a solar cover that is new this year for us - so maybe we can ALL swim before July not just the crazy kids, but really don't know how to use it..when to put it on, before the pool is balanced ?? Thanks.
