Hello! I'm from southern Arkansas and found this site the other day. We have been having problems with our pool since we opened it in May. And we are not new to this. Have had the pool for about 12 years now and 2 liners. I would like to ask a couple of questions but will first post my test results.....if I understand them right. I just got a new test kit today, k2006, any way this is what I got.
I am interested in trying the BBB method. So if I understand these numbers right and my CYA and CH is so high I am going to have to drain water from my pool to get them down. Is this right? Of course 12 years of using trichlor and dichlor. Is this the reason for the high readings? Is there anything else we can do to lower these? Right now our pool is cloudy. Can see the bottom in the shallow end, but not quite in the deep end (8'). Of course it is a lot better then it was when we opened it. Our cover got a few holes in it and when we uncovered it, it was a SLIME POND!!!! Mosquitos would have loved it! Any advice would be greatful!
