I opened our pool a couple days ago and tested the water. I used the pool calculator to get figure out how much bleach I needed to shock the pool. Here was my list of tested chemicals:
So I added the bleach that the calculator told me to add. I was out of town yesterday but have had the pump running 24/7 since I opened. I tested the chlorine today to make sure it was still up and it's 30! I was shooting for around 16 going by the chart. Anyway, where is the best place to start in getting the chemicals balanced? I am assuming I need to get the chlorine adjusted, then start with salt, CYA, TA, pH, and the CH in that order, right?
Or should I just start with the salt and allow the chlorine a few days to naturally come down? My intentions were to have the pool ready to go for this weekend since we are having my little girl's first birthday party. Thanks
