new convert here.... We have started our conversion and are only 3 days in as of today. We lowered the pool to fix a small leak and refilled. Using the pool calc. and assuming zero FC we added 532 oz. of 6% bleach. I need to say now we only have a cheapo test kit that tests only for chlorine/ph. We are waiting on our new TF100 to arrive(today? tomorrow?) Anyway, the chlorine was way off the chart. We added more later in the day. It appeared to be in the 2-3 range before adding. We did experience greenish/brown water but not as bad as some of the pictures we've seen here. We've monitored pretty constantly for the last 3 days and added a total of 12 gallons so far. After one day it started clearing to the blue/hazy stage and before dark actually looked clear. This morning added to the yellow to orange color(cheapo) and just got home and checked it,in the rain. It's down to the .5-1 range. We're adding more bleach to take it back up but my question is(finally) My PH is creeping up (8.2+), started at 7.4. Can this be from aeration? Do I adjust this during the conversion process(add muriatic acid) or just continue pouring on the FC until it holds? I will post full test levels as soon as I can. Great Site. Thanks so much.
