I had a bloom that i feel I am getting under control..
I stumbled on this site while trying to figure this yellow/brown "dust" I had on my pool floor for quite some time.
PH is 7.8
Fc is 10* ( I havent got my new test kit in yet) 10 is the max on this kit) I added 3 1.42 gal bottles of clorox last night)
al is 120
Cya appears to be 60 (still waiting on the new test kit this is a strip result for cya) uggghh i know :P
this morning after nuking the pool the green is gone and the floor is fairly clean.. i swept again and it seems to be alot less material than yesterday
I added another 1.42 G of bleach and plan to buy another 6 bottles today when i get to sams
My question is should I use the pucks I bought from walmart? they are trichlor.. I think that they may be adding WAAAY too much stabilizer to my pool..
and what would the target CYA level be I don't feel comfortable having a regular FC level around 10+ I have kids swimming in there
