Greetings, I am new pool owner. Long story short, the pool was neglected by previous owner last fall, they do hire people to close the pool, but my guess is they didn't vacuum it nor check chemistry.
For some reason, I just opened the pool 3 days ago (yeah, not too much time left, hehe), the water is green and muddy, bottom is covered by leaves. The opening guys throw a bottle of algaecide and two bags of shocks. Then I keep the filter running, and vacuum/brush, and backwash/add DE, again and again.
Today the pool looks much better, still little greenish though. I went to pool shop for water test, here it is:
I have read through the pool school last 2 days. If I understand correctly, CC are the dead soldiers fought algae or other organic. FC 0 mean I don't have any live soldier available. So I am losing the battle against algae, right? I poured 5 lb cal-hypo 65% 4:00PM today, according to poolcalculator, it will raise FC to 20 for a shock. (next time I will try household bleach).
Also there is no cyanuric acid at all in the pool. So I plan to put 5lb stabilizer tomorrow (according to poolcalculator, it will raise CYA to 30).
I am a total newbie. All my knowledge came from reading pool school and Tamminen's book last 48 hours. Please feel free to advice/comment. Thank you
