Just opened up the pool and did my first test with my Taylor test kit.
Pool is murky green and I needed to add about 2-3 feet of hose water to the pool with garden hose to get pool water to correct levels.
So, here are the test results.
cc = 0
ta = 80
CH = 120
cya = 0
I know I need to SLAM and get the PH lowered to 7.4 or so. I know that I need to add stabilizer to get my CYA to about 30. I know I need to add a ton of calcium hardness to get to proper levels.
My question is...should I address the CYA, PH , and CH levels before SLAMMING? What should be my priority?
Proud user of BBB method the last 3-4 years with great results. However, this is the greenest my pool has been at the open in awhile.
What specific order should I address the CYA, PH and CH.
I assume I'm going to have to add some dry acid (PH) and stabilizer (CYA) in a nylon sock to get PH and CYA inline before starting my SLAM, is that right?
At what point should I add the calcium hardness? before, during, or after the SLAM?
thanks in advance!
