Hello all and thanks in advance. I have posted under the pool forum and follow the TFP method for our pool. I recently was the highest bidder for a charity auction and I now have a Sundance marin spa sitting on our porch. Was delivered early and i was not prepared. I apologize because i usually research this but i am somewhat in need of quick help and then i will research further. I was not home for the delivery and my wife does not recall what chemicals were added (other than chlorine and scale inhibitor. I have tested the water with my TFT100 and initial results are as follows:
PH 8.2 +
Forgot to run the CYA
what should be my first steps. They left a box of starter chemicals. seems like i need to get PH down (can i use muriatic acid under pool math); their starter chemicals have some product to use; then add chlorine - i have pool shock for the pool which i use daily vs store bleach; can i use that; then adjust TA and finally CH.
