I thought a real test kit was coming in the mail, but apparently my sister purchased a test strip reader =( not what I was hoping for.
I decided it was time to stop shooting in the dark and I took a sample to the pool dealer.
Before I list them let me say good hard work pays off, and a helping hand from you guys, the pool now has only a tiny hint of green in it and you can see every inch of the pool.
I am not sure what these are... remember total NOOB here (second string pitcher that doesn't know the rules of the game)hehe
So i will list everything on the sheet and perhaps someone could tell me what is relevant'
Saturation index: -0.70
Water Color: None
Water Clarity: Clear
The guy in the store recommended 2 lb.s of the Cya stabilizer and I had just about that in the bucket I bought the other day. I put some in a sock and tied it to the ladder then got nervous and took it out
I used Bleach the whole time trying to clear it up and a few days into it I started using an OTO tester to check Chlorine only.
I added more bleach when I came home today and vacuumed but i think it's another good scrubbing that will do the trick and acutally having the CYA in there to stop all the bleach going away so quickly.
But I am very impressed with the progress and my sister took pictures of the progress I am just waiting til it's all done and perfect to post them hehe.
I still don't have the math down on the proper amount of bleach I need to raise it such and such, not that I don't completely understand I just haven't tried to work it out yet.
Let me know what ya think =)
Thanks so much for all your help!
