Yesterday I notice my pool seemed a little cloudy and I don't have a good test kit yet. I have the test strips plus the chlorine & PH test kit from Walmart. The Chlorine level was low so I went ahead and shocked the pool with the stuff we got with the pool. This afternoon when I got home, the water seemed clear but there was stuff all over the bottom of the pool. Looked a little brown like dirt, when I vacuumed the sock on the filter was green. So I think it's probally algae. I went ahead and put in some Halt 50 its for algae, the stuff that also came with the pool. I'm planning on using the BBB method, but wanted to use all the stuff up that came with the pool. I checked the Chlorine this afternoon and according to the test kit it was 5.0 which thats as high as it goes. I know its hard to tell me what to do without test number but if I order the test kit tomorrow, I probally wouldn't get it until late this week. What can I do until then.
