Hi, I'm new to pool ownership after home purchase and new to the DIY pool maintenance. Last year I had a service company service me weekly; pool was always blue. That got too expensive and now - algae for 2 weeks. My readings this mid day were:
TC - +10 (I ordered one of Dave's kits today)
TA = 100
pH = 7.6
CYA = 30-50
Hardness = 250
I have been adding liquid bleach, vaccuuming, backwashing and filtering 24/7. I don't think that I've been adding enough bleach because the water is still green. Is there anything I can try before my kit arrives? I'm afraid to let anyone in the pool, including myself.
I have a 23,000 gal. inground gunite with a Hayward sand filter. Thanks.
