Forgive me if this is a silly question, I've been languishing in Baquahell for 3 yrs and am new to the chlorine numbers.
Yesterday morning I started de-gunking my pool per Jasons sticky on algea removal, I put 2 lbs of CYA in a sock in the skimmer, this morning I tried to do the CYA test and the water remained clear after I added the CYA reagent, I filled up the tube and could still see the dot. Does this mean there's no CYA in the pool? Or did I just mess up the test?
The sock from yesterday was 3/4ths gone this morning so I put more in.
I have a 12'X28' AG Doughboy, a little over 7900 gal. Haywood pump and sand filter
FC-still high this a.m., it stayed a med orange color overnight.
Total Alk- 130
I'm ordering a "real" test kit today.
The water is still milky but is BLUE now
