OK! Started out with a Green Mess I got my PH down and thought I was shocking it. I guess I am not using the pool calculator correctly, I added 2 182oz of bleach & 4 pucks along with 1pkt of Super Shock... My CYA was below 20.
I added another bottle of bleach this morning before I left for work & turned the pump from recirculate to filter. My daughter is at home sweeping and backwashing every time I call her. I don't know if I have enought bleach in there to shock. I've been reading TONS of subjects and going in circles with all the information, yet learning A LOT!
I am going to perform my overnight FC test tonight since it's the weekend and I'll have time to concentrate on the pool. I've got to wait to order a good testing kit until next pay period(strict budget) but have the HTH 6way from Walmart.
Do I have to test my PH & start all over when I get home?
How do I really know how much bleach to add? I see people adding TONS.
I hope I'm on the right track, it's not swamp green anymore...I guess that's a good thing.
