My pool is swampy green and Id like to be able to learn how to turn it blue again. I received My TF-100 test kit and my following results are:
FC: 0 TC: 0
CYA: 0 (I filled the tube to the top and I could still see the black dot)
My brother performed the exact same test I did and he got the same numbers, with the exception of TA (he got 70).
I have purchased all my chlorine (about 12 gallons so far) and muriatic acid (4 gallons) and some stabalizer (I think thats the CYA) and im ready to begin. From my understanding I am suppose to balance the pool first (pH) before I add chlorine correct? I think an ideal goal is to be around 7.4 since the chlorine will raise the pH level slightly?
Im still a little confused with the pool calculator so forgive me if im wrong in any of this. Could someone tell me if im in the right direction or direct me on which way I should go?
