Hi everyone this is my first post here. I recently started trying to clean up my pnod. It was Green when i started then went to brown now.
I started out with just bleach at night time all other levels were in the recomended range.
i've put about 6 gallons of 5.7 bleach and 8 pounds of trichlor spread over 2 nights. And still cant see bottom of pool. I tried my best to keep chlor at 15ppm but couldnt keep it there.
I Figured there was algae in the filter so i ran 10oz cleaner through backwash and waited 1hr.
Then I put polyquat 60% in. So my question is how long do i need to wait to shock again? I talked to two pool stores and both give a different answer. Leslies says wait 1 day and all seasons says right away with 6 pounds. bens best guess cya chart says thats way too much chlorine.
11,000 gallon above ground
just before pollyquat were these levels acording to pool store
TC:3-6 they said it was all combined chlorine
They have a machine hooked to a computer and i dont trust it.
my reading was
TC:3-6 and after reagent r-0003 it stayed at 3-6
CYA:i dont have kit for that
any thoughts would be appriciative
oh another question how many ppm of cya does tri chlor pucks add to 10,000 gallons
