Hello, My pool is green with no visibility. I've been at it for over a month. I found your forum and have been reading it every night.
I also bought a tf 100 test kit. I'm doing what was said in the "Green swamp to oasis forum" but had no change in over 7 days. I can only get about 45 min. to an hour of filter time before I have to back wash and recharge. I cleaned out the filter twice. In the begining I had a problem with clorine, CYA, and the sunshine, but now that's not the case (Rain). I have been to multiple pool stores, and I have talked too many different people, all giving me different answers. could you please help? thanks!
My Numbers Are:
As of 6/24/09 Am
PH=7.2 (x4 days)
T/A=120 (x2 days, down from 170 and 140)
CYA= 50 and holding
Since the TFP I started using Borax, I was using Baking Soda and had a problem with a high T/A and normal PH.
I also use 12.5% clorine. I can't run the filter 24/7 do to the clogging. I also broke down and used a copper base (mustard algaecide)
Daily pool brushings
Thank You, Wally
