I have a 21,900 gal vinyl lined pool. I moved into the house in late July and just used the chlorine tabs the previous owner left me. When I closed the pool I just shocked, added algecide and covered the pool and forgot about it. After finding TFP I learned alot and I am going to do BBB....
Here is my issue...
I tested my water (with the cover still on) with a test strip (I know I need to order a real kit) I will take a sample to the pool store to see their results. The water looks pretty clear.
here are my results:
Hardness - 250
TC - 1
FC - 0
pH - 6.8
CYA - 350
Here is my plan: drain some water, refill & test CYA repeat untill I get below 80. After I get to below 80, add bleach & adjust pH.
How much can water drain out of my pool? 1ft? 2ft?
Does my plan sound good?
I will never use the trichlor tabs again (unless I need to add CYA) also, I ordered a liquidator .
