We have a new pool, was put in fall of 2015. I just dosed with MA to bring PH and TA down, and I will add stabilizer tomorrow to continue to bring CYA up. I have a Taylor k2006 test kit.
FC 14 (PB had swg set at 50%, I put it to 0%for now)
PH 7.4 (was 8.0, added MA this afternoon by using taylor test kit suggested dose)
TA 170 (been bringing it down along with the PH, was 230 when I started adding MA 2 weeks ago)
CYA 35 (was 0, slowly bringing it up with stabilizer)
Am I doing this right? When I add the MA the water shimmers, not sure if that's good or means the MA isn't dispersing enough? I poured slowly over the return when i added it, then brushed the walls and floor. We have a sport pool so the "deep" is only 5' deep where I pour the MA.
thanks for the help.
