New to this and first time I used Pool Math.
Last time I ran Pool Math, it said I needed;
6 96 oz bottles of Bleach
96 oz of Baking Soda
181 oz of Calcium Chloride
91 oz of CYA
I also added 100 lbs of Salt
Yesterday I added the Baking Soda and today through the c course of the day, I added the others above.
Let it run all day to mix and turn over the pool and did tests at 6 pm.
Salt - 3.96
Chlorine by comparator Kokido comparator kit / add 5 drops.........was a bright orange colour, so could not read a value
FC - 25
CYA - 50 It was zero before adding the 91 oz of CYA today.
TA - I stopped at 90 drops......so if I am correct, it is now over 900. I repeated this test to make sure, even at 90 drops, only pale yellow, will not turn red.
CH - 100
Now chorine is off the charts........looks like that 6 jugs of bleach was too much
Now TA is at least double what it should be
Now CH is also high
I am going to go plug these values into Pool Math
Really looking forward to advice here.
After writing this post, I see ONE mistake I made and maybe not the only one......I added 6 jugs of Chlorine when none was required, when I saw that 6 that is always there, I took that for 6 jugs but it is the box before that is the important one and is was ZERO........I am dumping water to waste right now to get rid of the Chlorine and high TA.
Waiting for advice.....
