    Question what to treat first??

    Hi!! My pool is out of whack! I just cleaned my salt cell last night because it was saying my salt was low. But after cleaning that light went off. I tested and my chlorine level is at 0 and my pH is at 8.4. Sooooo what do I treat first?! Also what is the best way to raise the chlorine?! We have the little floater but is that the most effective way to do it? I am starting to see little green spots on the bottom of my pool so I'm hoping if I fix the chlorine those will go away.

    Thanks for the advice!

    Fix the pH first, lower it using Muriatic Acid, then use bleach to raise FC, please go to pool school to read about it and test for CYA, what test kit do you have?
