I have been having problems with cloudiness and started noticing a bit of green. My PH has been running constantly high(8.3) and my TA started at 260. CYA = 40. I decided to shock the pool to clear up the water. I also was trying to bring down the PH and TA. I've been adding bleach keeping it at 16ppm or a little above. Last night I added 6 pounds of PH down to lower PH & TA. Last night TA was 210.
This morning when I tried to test the FAS/DPD & TA (using TR-100 kit) the tests acted wierd. FAS/DPD calls for a heaping spoon of the powder(R-870, I think, don't have kit at work with me) to turn sample pink. I put in the heaping spoon and nothing happens. I add another spoonful and it changes to pink. I finish the test and it shows I have 25 FC and 0CC. Then I try the TA test. I add the 2 drops of (R007, I think I may have the numbers wrong here, but I followed the instructions exactly) Then I added the 5 drops of green(r008?). The sample turns kind of blue-green. I then start adding the clear drops(R009?) the sample never even tries to turn red. It gets bluer then eventually turns yellow. It's never acted this way for either test before. Can anyone tell me what I've done?
