Starting the season (as is I'm sure everyone else in the southwest).
Already done the usual, i.e., brush, vacuum, wash-out filters, etc. Currently building CYA up as it is currently 40. Tested PH which is a nice bright red so I know it is 8 or higher. TA is 190. I've added the amount of acid that Poolcalculator says to bring me down to 7.2. I have a waterfall and that is where my question comes in.
Should I run the waterfall WHILE I'm trying to bring PH down to 7.2? Or wait until I have 7-7.2 and then run waterfall to bring TA down?
Ulimately, I need to get PH/TA in line so I can start the spring SLAM.
Thanks in advance.
