Background: New plaster pool 1 week old.
I did order my test kit, because the pool store totally hosed me with the Taylor kit purchase. Right now I'm relying on pool store numbers.
Pool yesterday = cloudy but not green.
FC - .1
pH - 8.2
TA - 115
CH - 135
I added 1/2 gallon of Muriatic Acid. I also jacked up my in-line chlorinatore to 5, but I've just come to the conclusion that it doesn't work or it's not worth a ****. Why you say? Well after a big rain last night my pool is now grey/green/cloudy and here are my new numebrs from the pool store:
FC - 0
pH - 8.0
TA - 50
CH - 100
CYA - 0
So after reading Pool school and the forums I think I know what to do next, I just need support that I'm doing things right. Here are my plans:
Get FC up to 6.5. I decided that number would be a good one to start at since it's exactly equal to 2 large container of Regular Clorox when using my pool's number in the pool calculator. I also wanted to add enough CYA to at least get me to 10. I was going to do the CYA in a sock thing about an hour after the initial chlorine add. That's mainly since I don't know if I'm allowed to do those 2 things together.
How's the plan?
