hey guys i just opened my pool for the spring and these are the results i got to using my taylor k-2006 test kit. My pool is 18,000 gallos above ground.
FC 6.6ppm CC 1.6 ppm
So, my ph is a little low, the CC level is too high, TA & CYA are ok. I read on one of the forums that i need to shock my pool (FC 16ppm) until the CC goes down, i plan on using 8.3 bleach which is what i have at home. Will this affect the ph, TA and CYA??
