    EUREKA!!!!!! Now help me not screw it up!

    We drained the pool...again. And we now have a CYA of 50!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! However, in doing so we seriously tweaked the rest of our chemicals.

    FC - 3.5
    CC - .5
    PH - 7.2-7.5
    CH - 155
    TA - 50
    CYA - 50

    Pool math recommends the following:
    38 ounces of 10% bleach
    187 ounces of CH
    56 oz of baking soda

    So here are my questions...
    1. A stupid question because I never did good in math. When it says 187 oz by weight or 149 oz by volume it means you would use a scale for the first one and a measuring cup for the second correct?
    2. In what order do I add these items?
    3. How long do I wait between adding chemical types?

    Thanks!

    What does you water look like?

    1. Yes
    2. It does not make a lot of difference. FC first, then the CH, and baking soda. I would not raise the TA above 80ppm.
    3. 15 minutes is likely plenty.

    Water is crystal clear!!! We have stains again which means we basically wasted that entire month of treating them but they are not as severe and at this point we will take them just to have normal chemical levels again!
