I've been reading TFP for months and we just switched over to the BBB method. I am very excited to have an alternative to the pool supply store. We have been through the gamut with having to lower the CYA level, algaecides and treating high phosphates- which led me to find TFP. I am so grateful!
I've been shocking our pool since last Friday due to green algae. FC count is decreasing overnight by 2 ppm. There is some clouding while sweeping the pool which could be dirt (we are surrounded by farmland and it is plowing time), pollen or algae. When testing during the day, the FC is falling very little (.5-1ppm) hour to hour- sometimes not at all. (The pool is in full sun until the evening.) But I can't get it to hold steady overnight. The water is blue and cloudy.
Current TF100 results are:
Temp 69 (up 6 degrees this week)
Do I just need to keep up the shocking, or is there something else I may need to check out?
