In such a situation, it is recommended to shock your pool once again, using a higher concentration of chlorine shock. You can increase the dose to be anywhere from 2 to 6 times the normal amount. Once the chlorine levels stabilize, it is advisable to add an algaecide to complete the treatment. After the algae have cleared, you may also consider vacuuming the pool to remove any remaining dirt and debris.
To calculate the volume of your pool, you will need to determine its dimensions.
Length x Width x Average Depth x Multiplier = Volume in Gallons
Please ensure that all measurements are in feet, including the depth. In the case of above ground pools, assume that the water depth is 6 inches less than the wall height. For example, if your pool has a wall height of 48 inches, consider the depth as 3.5 feet, and for a 52-inch pool, use 4 feet. If mathematics isn't your strong suit, there are numerous online calculators available to help you determine the gallonage of your pool. Just perform a quick internet search, and you will find several options in the top search results for further assistance.
While you may be eager to start enjoying your pool, it is crucial to ensure that the pool's chemical balance is appropriately maintained before taking a dip. This includes having the right pH level, sanitizer concentration, stabilizer level, total alkalinity, and water hardness. Additionally, there should be no presence of algae or metals in the water to ensure proper pool opening.
