I'm relatively new to TFP, did it a couple of years ago and made the mistake of moving away to the local pool stores advice. Long story short, went on vacation and ended up with a fluorescent green pool that I couldn't get to change no matter their recommendations. The wife and I made the decision to stop throwing good money after bad so we drained, washed and refilled, aside from evaporation losses this pool has never had the water replaced.
Did a test this morning and here are the results. (Tap Water)
out of CYA reagent but assuming it's 0. Will test this again this evening.
Using the calculator I see that I need to add 30 oz of baking soda, 16 oz of MA, 28 lbs of CaCl, and 5 lbs of CYA to get into the normal range. Not to mention adding chlorine in the form of 8.25% bleach. What is the recommended order for adding them? Do I need to get the TA in range before adjusting pH? Should I add the CaCl prior to or after?
Edited for this question: I'm going to replace the sand in the filter this weekend, should I recirculate or go ahead and filter?
