We bought a house last September that was a foreclosure the pool was uncovered for who knows how long so it was green, leafie and froggie,. I have been working on getting this pool clear since the beginning of june and it is still cloudy.
I have been reading ALOT on this forum and have learned alot. We had a coupe set backs and I went and bought a new pump and filter because we had no idea how old the other one was and I did not feel it was working properly.
It has came a long way and it is no longer green and I am not pulling much from the bottom anymore when I vaccuum but it is still a little cloudy I would say 1/2 way down. I went to the pool store Monday to have my water checked because I wasnt sure I was reading my strips right and I know I need a better test kit but that will have to wait a couple weeks.
My pool is not holding Chlorine obviously because my CYA is close to zero. the pool lady told me on Monday dump 2 gallons of chlorine in run the pump through day shut it off at night in the morning backwash, add another 1/2 gallon chlorine repeat for 2 days and if chlorine is holding add Stabilizer on Thursday and keep adding 1/4 - 1/2 gallon chlorine everyday.
Followed instructions Monday tested mon night chlorine good, Tuesday same, this morning I go out to vacuum and I tested water no chlorine???? My question is do I start over and add 2 more gallons of chlorine?
Should I already of added my Stabilizer?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
This is what my test strip read this morning to the best of my knowledge
