    Need some help with in-laws pool

    I don't have my test kit so the results are from a Walmart kit. Anyways. Their pool is a 10k gallon above ground pool. It seems to be a shade of green and I can hardly see the bottom. Yesterday I added some Muriatic acid because the test kit showed it to be higher than ph8.4 below are the current results from the cheap kit. Any advice?

    FC 3
    pH 7.5
    TA 40
    TH 100
    CYA 30-50

    Yes-----they need one of our recommended test kits and it needs to be SLAMMED per Pool School. FC is at the bare minimum for the CYA "range" you listed.
