We didn't get our water balanced in time and had a company come out and close our pool. It is a 30k gal gunite pool. I have a pump in the pool with a hose that runs to the other side of the pool, hoping this will be enough circulation for the chemicals we are and will be adding. We are attempting to balance the pool with the cover on by opening a few feet on one side. So far, we have added muriatic acid to get the pH down (waited 1 day). Next step is adding a bottle of PhosFree to get the phosphates down (waiting 1-2 days). Finally we are going to shock the pool with Calcium Hypochlorite.
Are all of these possible with just the circulation pump we have and without a filter running?
Is this the right order to add the products?
What level of FC do I need to get to with the Calcium Hypo to winterize my pool?
