I have just been able to get into my pool to start cleaning up after the effects of the Tropical Storm that is sweeping around Florida.
after vacuuming my pool it got semi-cloudy. Had a feeling this was going to happen. So after vacuuming, I ran pump for about 2 hours and then washed out the filter.
This morning got up and pool still a little cloudy, so I used Vinyl Shock in it and I am awaiting the effects that might have on it.
I have just purchased at the pool store. 2 yellow jugs of chlorine and a gallon of Muratic Acid.
I did get to test the water before adding shock and the levels were out of this world
I only have a three way test kit from Aqua Chem and these are the readings.
CH: above 5.0( it turned a very bright Orange)
BR: Above 11.0(same things turn Bright Orange)
PH was around 8.2
I have a 18x42 pool with a Intex 2500 GPH(love It)
What should i do? This is the first year we have had a pool with a storm around.
