Hi everyone, I learned a lot at the end of the season last year but have slept since then so I feel like I'm starting over. Have an in-ground pool with liner, approx 11000 gallons. Took the covers off and cleaned and shocked with 3 bags so far of the 1 pound bags from Walmart. Frankly Im surprised at how well it looks so fast. I did add a large bottle of vitamin C. All the test I have done are as follows:
Total Chlorine----zero (not even close to being on the scale)
PH----------------below 6.8 but close
CYA---------------below 30 ppm (whole tube full and still see the dot)
Was hoping for guidance on what order to adjust levels and recommended products. not against pool store bought but would like to start use of the everyday items like bleach borax and baking soda. strictly for cost savings. any help would be appreciated. I will cruise through Pool School while i listen.
Thanks and good to be back
