    kenmars Pool Opening 4/30/2010

    Hi All,

    Our pool was opened today!

    Initial Readings
    FC: 0
    CC: 0 (this confuses me, but I am OK with it)
    CYA: 20
    PH: 7.2
    TA: 20
    Water Clarity: Dull, with visible algae on walls and floor. Main drains were visible.

    Added bleach and trichlor tabs(to bring up CYA.)
    FC was 18 two hours later.
    Spent 2 hours brushing and vacuming.
    Gave the Dolphin Dynamic a workout.
    And this is what I get Woot Woot!

    I'll work on the CYA and TA over the next few days.

    Thanks Trouble Free Pool!

    Where's the visible algae?

    I suggest you get that TA up this evening or tomorrow morning - use baking soda. Target 70 and add half the calculated dose. Let it circulate about 2 hours and test it again, recalculate and add more to reach your target. Test the PH again.

    Why does the CC confuse you?

    With a green pool and 0 FC, I would assume CC would register greater then 0.
    I will work on the TA/PH tomorrow.

    If the fc had been 0 for some time, there was no fc to combine with anything and make cc! so zero makes sense there. Looks like you had a TFP opening!

    So it was blue when you opened it, and now it's this dark teal green? Odd.

    I am not sure if you were kidding or not, but it was green at 11AM when I opened it, and now it is blue.
    I posted the green picture to show what it looked like when I opened it (compared to how it looked a few hours later.)
