    WTB water chemestry wise

    Hello,

    Testing tonight. On a regular basis what chemicals do I need?

    I assume baking soda, bleach, liquid clorine and DE (I have a DE filter). What am I missing?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Muriatic acid comes to mind.

    Bleach and liquid chlorine are the same thing. Generally all you're going to need is bleach and de and maybe some muriatic acid. Although everything we add to the pool is based on reliable test results.

    Bleach/liquid chlorine, Muriatic Acid, and DE are all you really need to buy now... Besides the test kit

    Borax and baking soda are only needed if your TA and PH need adjusting up, the MA will take them both down and that is all most everyone ever needs...

    Hmm. Thank you! I will have to determine if it makes sense to just use bleach vs chlorine. Thanks for the info!
