Bought a house with a neglected AG Pool. Went looking online for some help and landed here. Have been through all the pool school articles and some others. I have a TF-100 kit ordered but not arrived yet. Took cover off, scraped all leaves i could out(alot of leaves & green sludge).
The water is dark green and very murky. I got the pump & filter running after some trouble with a leaking lid. Back Washed Filter & tested water with the small kit( only OTO Chlorine & PH).
Will be using the BBB method for clearing & maintaining the pool. 6 large jugs of bleach, 2 big boxes for Baking Soda & 20 Mule Borax, 2 jugs Muriatic Acid. Now waiting for the TF-100 to come in so I wondering is there anything I can do besides running the pump until the kit arrives?
Chlorine = 0
PH > 8.2 That is highest the testor goes, but looked to be much higher by color.
