Sup guys, I'm new here, but I've been trying to get as much info as I could before I posted. My pool is green as green can be, and I feel like I've been fighting this battle all summer long. I have placed an order for the test kit, and I know that it's the first step to bringing my pool back to life.
While I'm waiting for that to come, I've purchased a case of liquid chlorine from the local pool store, and I want to get started ASAP. Should I put all 4 gallons of this stuff in, or should I just put a couple in today, then a couple more tomorrow? When I tested my pool with the test strips that I have, it showed an extremely low chlorine level.
Now to compound this all, I have a DE filter that loses pressure about every 2 hours. I can't tell you how many times I've changed the earth so far, definitely more than 20. I guess I'll be changing it a ton while the pool is green, so I need to get this going right away.
Once my kit comes in, I'll post my levels. In the meantime, I am going to take some water up to the local pool place and have them test. Thanks!!
