    I'm a believer!

    Opened last week to a green swampy mess and about a million worms (fly larva).... Fast forward one week: We were swimming yesterday in almost CRYSTAL CLEAR water:
    All it took was time, patience( hard for me!) and BBB:

    My totals for the week:
    The TFT 100 kit
    $12 worth of bleach
    $3 worth of stabilizer
    $1.50 worth of muriatic acid.
    2 boxes of baking soda
    & a heckuva lot of filtering, skimming, brushing and backwashing


    Here are my specs
    FC 5
    pH 7.4 (going to try and bump it up tonight)
    CYA 50
    TA 80

    FC dropped 1 overnight.....
    I think I'm good now. Thanks for all of your help!

    Nice work on your pool!

    I would leave pH right where it is. It's perfect now and will likely tend to slowly rise over the summer.
