I've read so much on here & read & read pool school. I've learned so much it can make a person's head spin. But it's nice to make other peoples face when they hear me talk about it According to my overnight FC test last night, I'm almost there...
I lost 2ppm. Going to get more bleach after this post. After working a week on it and realizing I wasn't keeping my shock level up due to work, I've managed to with some help. I can see the bottom but the water is still cloudy/milky.
I'm getting in with a brush to make sure I've got everything loose. Backwash daily when pressure up. Doing just great.
CYA: 40- had to keep a sock floating with CYA to get it up from 10 But I did it!
According to the pool calculator I need to add the following:
3- 182oz Bleach
253 oz of Borax
190 oz of Baking Soda.
Do I add these now while I'm shocking or would I wait until I've for certain passed my overnight FC test? I'd like to get the pool clear for our cook out Sunday. We have a TON of young Airmen/women that don't have family close that will be here. I can stay on top of it until then...it's got to work.
Thank you! :lol:
