    During the normal season, all my SWG pool needs is Muratic Acid.

    For an SWG pool, muriatic acid is all you will likely need. It's always good to have some bleach on hand for the option of quickly increasing your FC level if needed.

    You may eventually need baking soda or borax or CYA but don't go buying any of that until you've done some testing. Post your test results when your kit arrives! It's a good idea to test your fill water for just TA and CH as well... and gives you some more practice!

    I keep 4 gallons of bleach on hand just in case. My wife uses it for laundry and just rotates them so they stay reasonably fresh. I always have some MA and a box or two of Borax. I'm lucky and have a true lazy man's pool though and rarely needs any adjusting unless I knock something out of whack myself like getting borates added
