Been reading a lot on the boards since the weekend. Trying to absorb as mush as possible so I don't ask the same questions as others.
Got my tf-100 kit in the mail today, so I am finally able to do a test and get the results you guys need to finish helping me.
We opened the pool last week (Mon the 24th). Added liquid chlorine from pool store (10%) 16, 1 gal jugs. It was green, but you could see the bottom in shallow end but not deep. Took a water sample to the 'devil' store leslie's on Friday. The kid told me I had to much chlorine in the pool for him to do an accurate test. Told me I needed to let it die down before I could do anything else. Stupid me sorta listened to him. Spent Saturday searching the web for answers and that's when I found this site.
I had some power powder plus I had just bought to shock it with that I used to kill the algae, since it got worse, cause that dumb kid told me to. Spent Sunday shocking/brushing/back washing. By Monday, the color was becoming tealish. I went to the other 'devil' store Walmart and bought bleach. Added it throughout the day Monday again repeating the process of brush/backwash/etc. Tuesday I finally started making a turn for the better. I made another walmart run, bought more bleach and repeated the process the best I could. Had to work and I left husband in charge for the night shift.
Which brings me to today. You can see the bottom in the whole pool, it just has a cloudy tinge to it. I tested the water with my new fancy kit (which my husband laughed at me for) and here are the results. Please tell me what to do from here...
TA 150 (turned yellow not clear)
I have pictures of the pool if I can figure out how to add them. Thanks for the help!!!
