Ok, I wish I would have found this site a few weeks ago. I have a 3800 gallon summer escape pool, (not the blow up kind). I set it up a two weeks ago and tested. Given the numbers I added 8oz of dichlor and retested 24 hrs later, FC was zero, added another 8 oz of dichlor tested 12 hrs later and FC was again zero. So I tested the CYA it was zero. I'm using a HTH 6 way test kit from Wally World. So then I bought some HTH stabilizer and added one pound in a sock for the last week, tested again last night and the CYA still doesn't show up. I did clean my filter this weekend which maybe I shouldn't have done that. I also added about a pound of Arm & Hammer to raise PH and TA, which it did. During the course of the last two weeks I have added a total of 6 1" tabs in the filter. I live in ND so its not real warm here yet.
I did go to wally world and buy two gallons of bleach.
Here are my current readings:
Should I go back and follow the beginners guide for seasonal/temporary pools?
Thanks for the help.
