I moved into a home with a pool in early March. I have had a pool service coming weekly for maintenance. I decided to try to my hand at the TFP method and got my TF-100 Test Kit and ran my first full battery of tests today. Here are the results:
FC - 11
CC - 0
pH - 7.2
TA - 160
CH - 450
CYA - 100+
My pool is somewhere around 22-29k gallons. It's an odd shape and hard to measure. I put my numbers into pool math and I see I should be replacing somewhere near 80% of my water volume. That isn't doable given the drought and high price of water in California right now. I see I need to add some Borax or soda ash to raise my pH and then aerate to lower my TA.
What is best way to aerate?
I guess my biggest question should be, what should I tackle first?
Thank you! I look forward to the help and eventually paying it forward and helping others once I'm an "expert".
