we are in spain its just warming up nicely here and we wanna jump in the pool, we have been at this house since february 1st on arrival the pool was glistening, the previous owners said they had just had it done and we would not need to do anything for months,
so we do nothing apart from read about it and learn that we cant just do nothing.
so i buy ph phenol red and cl oto testing kit i test and the ph showed red which i have now sorted by using ph minus to achieve the goal of 7.4 but the cl. br is deep orange, the pool looks cleans smells clean and even glistens on a good day but im not confident in using it for our children especially while this chlorine level is showing deep orange. the pump is on at least 3 hours in a morning and 3 hours at night although whilst i have been sorting the ph level and adding 3 pound of chlorine to it ive left it on consistently for the last 3 days. i adding 3 lb of chroline because i thought it may need shocking the clorine used was cloro en grano disolucion on rapid cristals which i weighed out mixed then in a bucket and pored into the pool using more at the deep end and leaving the pump on in fiteration mode with jets on. i also used the tablet form of tester which instead of orange showed deep red, i still finding my feet here and cant seem to find any other testing equipment so ebay is a must but i have to wait i have 200 gr of copper sulphate which i have not used yet alltho the pack did contain 400 so maybe its been used by the previous owners.i also have floculante tablets which i put in the float.
the pool in 7.5 metres in length x 4 metres wide x 2 metres deep at the deep end X 1 metre at the shallow
any help/advice/guidance will be much appreciated
