    Addressing Multiple Issues

    With the torrential rains ending, have to address low TA, low CH, and probably low CYA this week. No confusion on how to address each, but is there any problem doing them all at once?

    Raising TA and CH at the same time will probably lead to cloudiness. It will pass with time.

    The CYA can just be set in the skimmer in a sock and left there. I'd deal with pH, TA, and CH in that order, and let things mix good between additions. Also remember that you'll lose salt if things overflow, so don't neglect that or the SWG may stop generating.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Re: Addressing Multiple Issues

    Thanks, Richard.

    Have TA up to 70 and am working on CH. Added ~5 lbs of Calcium Choloride this morning to bring CH up to 230 this evening. Added another 3 lbs this evening and will measure tomorrow. Pool Math tells me I need just under 12 lbs to bring CH up to 300. I'll probably be cautious in further additions.
