So I've been doing a lot of reading. I have a decent test kit but have the better one on order. Yesterday pool store tests says cya 0 ph 7.8 ch 500 chlorine 0 and alk 450!. Our pool is 6000 gal vinyl above ground coleman 16x48 pool. I also have an swg from intex running.
I've added 125lbs salt, gallon of bleach (before pool store test). After test ive added a bag of tri chlor shock cya in a sock and about a gallon of muriatic acid. My ph is now 7.2 my cya is unknown at this point but 6 hrs after shocking its holding at 3 according to the test I have. Alk is still high at 380 according to my test. I have a sprayer going to aerate..
Just want to know where I should go from here.. can we swim? Water is very clear and clean. Thanks
Also to note the fill water was well and was a cloudy brown yellow and sulfur smell and now it looks and smells like a pool!
Also should note that the plates in the swg are building a lot of scale quickly
