I don't have TFTkits with me anymore - already ordered one yesterday! But would like to see what I can do now while the test kit is on the way.
Took sample of pool water to both Leslie's and Pinch-A-Penny (yeah, I know.. "pool stores lol"). Did both to ensure I can see what's close to reality (if there's some degree of consistency between the 2 results) and what's way off (mis-measured at one place possibly).
FAC, TAC both 0 (yeah, bad)
Salt level: 2300 (although my SWG is reporting 2700-2800 at the moment)
CYA: 10 (yeah, too low)
pH: 8.0 (high)
Phosphates: 200 ppm (high)
FAC, TAC also 0
salt level: did not measure (they thought I had chlorine pool, not SWG)
pH: also 8.0 (high)
CYA: 20 (also too low)
Been a while, I'm rusty w/pool chemicals, help me out - I know I need to fix CYA, pH, and have SWG generating chlorine again for pool - what do I start with? Shock (to add CYA)? Add salt? Fix pH levels? What are the first steps here in bringing my pool back to normalcy gradually? I know this is going to be a multi-step thing, I'm not sure which one is priority right now. Thanks in advance!
