We just put in a new pool. I've tested the water at a local supply store and ended up with $$chemicals to use. A friend told me about this site and so far it's been very helpful!
I purchased a recommended test kit and used it for the first time tonight.
Here are the results.
8 ppm pH
I have a big bucket of trichlo to use up for the chlorine. If I understand correctly I need to add 7.5 oz to raise my FC.
I need to add muriatic acid to lower my TA and pH, but which number do I target first, so I don't lower it too much?
I'm not sure what to use to raise my CYA. My test only went down to 30 and I could still see the dot in the bottom.
I'm also using 3" chlorine tabs.
I didnt test test for anything else. Are there only things I need to watch for?
