    I need assistance

    Cl 5
    pH 6.8
    FC 8.5
    CC 0
    CH 125
    TA 20
    CYA 80

    We finally got a TF-100 test kit and took all the readings today. I know we are off and I am clueless.
    We recently have been getting alge in the corners that I can’t even seem to brush away. We have been using the 3” Tri-Chlor Tabs because we had them, but they are almost out so I will move onto bleach for the remainder of the season and we will change to SWG next year. The filter is run from 11:30am to 6:30pm.

    What do I treat first and how?
    I'm going to take a trip to Walmart to get some Bleach, Borax and Baking Soda, how much of each should I buy? I have about 5-6 weeks left of pool time.

    Pool School - Chlorine / CYA Chart your MINIMUM FC should be 6. Raise PH first to mid 7 range with washing soda or borax or just areate it if you can. Get the TA to 50-60 range using plain baking soda. PoolMath will tell you how much to add.
