Hello all. I have been doing my own pool tests for about a month. I do have a salt water chlorinated pool about 12k gallons. I did my test today and decided to do a pool store test to compare. Results about average between both:
Alkalinity 60 ppm
these are the numbers that concern me. I know to lower PH I will use muriatic acid. To increase Alkalinity I will use baking soda but unsure what to use to increase CYA and decrease copper. I have been trying to stick to the BBB method, have yet to use borax but have been using baking soda. Any suggestions what to use for CYA and copper that would be great.
I have already added added the baking soda today and plan on adding the 4-5 cups of muriatic acid tomorrow. Thanks in advance.
