Chlorine pH and Alkalinity Readings
by Mrs M Mcleod
(Prestonpans East Lothian)
I have a 12ft x 30in pool its been fill for three weeks now and i cannot get the chemicals levels up to were they should be my water has went slightly cloudy and my filter has been running for 16 h with no improvement please can you help
I'd like to have your complete chemical readings, the actual numbers:
Chlorine, CYA (cyanuric acid/stabilizer), pH, Alkalinity, Calcium Hardness, and Metals (iron and copper) and names of any algaecides you may have used along with clarifiers, phosphate removers, and/or flocs. It makes troubleshooting much easier and the process of clearing up your pool will go much faster.
Without these numbers I'm just guessing at what the problem is. Get back to me with the chemical numbers and I'm sure I can help.
