Hi, newbe here. My water is just starting turning a bit cloudy.
Copper0.15, ph 7.66, tds 1509, Free chlorene 1.6, combined chlorene 1.6, cya 80.
Looking for suggestions how to proceed . Pool is appx 7500 gal
I use a solar copper ionizer. I usually put 1 chlorene puck in a floatie per week. Once every 7 to 10 days I shock with about 1/3 cup of glandular chlorine. I use a Taylor testing kit. Yesterday I put a couple cups of muratic acid. Today my readings are: identical except CYA is 60, free and combined chlorine are both at 0.4
Pool owners frequently seek out "Chemical Free" alternatives to pool water sanitization. Many claims in favor of these systems and methods have been made (usually by the manufacturers of such systems) often without adequate scientific proof of their efficacy. Let's take a look at them and see...
The copper can help with keeping algae at bay but it does next to nothing to sanitize the water. So you have to use chlorine, 1ppm chlorine will only last 30-45 minutes before it succumbs to UV degradation. So then you have to add stabilizer (CYA). Now that same 1ppm chlorine is bound with the CYA rendering it useless for sanitation. You must now add enough chlorine to overcome the CYA/ chlorine reaction, then you have a normal chlorine pool with an expensive piece of plastic that does nothing but add metals to your pool. So many people get "pool stored" into believing whatever they say. They just want to sell you something.
