We are in the process of opening pool for the season we added water to bring water level proper operating level ( did partial drain for over winter have above grd pool) initial readings on May 13 where
PH - 8.2
CL - 0
CH - 400
CYA - ? didn't measure so i went on the assumption it was 15 - 20 as a starting point to add chemicals and bring up to 30 didn't want to add to much
so as i was getting CYA measured out I told my hubby what chemicals to add - we where slamming the pool it was very green should of taken pictures.
pool math said to add 296 oz of 12.5% bleach and i added 39 oz of CYA well not sure what happened-if i said muriatic acid by mistake or what so he added 296 oz of muriatic acid not Bleach and as we kept going threw the slam process muriatic acid was added until 2 days ago when i figured out what was going on.
today my numbers are:
PH - 6.8 Which has been steady for 4 days
FC - 20 CC - 1.5
TA - 80
CYA - 30
Question is should i just aerate to raise ph or should i add borate ( 20 mule team borax)
