Add MA last night to lower TA. Tested this morning and am at:
83 degrees temp
FAC - 14.4 (up from 12 yesterday prior to MA add and significantly more chlorine smell this morning )
Salt - 3200
CH - 370
CYA - 85
TA - 70 (down from 85 last night before MA add)
pH - 7.4 (down from 7.8 last night before...)
1) I just added 1/3 gallon MA to try to bring TA down to 60. Assuming TA goes to 60 and pH is 7.0-7.2 am I ok to add boric acid tomorrow?
2) MY FC is way high according to the suggested level of 4. Should I shut down or adjust my SWG until it reaches 4? Does this level affect adding boric acid at all?
3) CH and CYA are high but dumping water from the pool and beginning again is not very inviting. Should I bite the bullet and do it or will I be ok?
Sorry for all the newb questions and thanks in advance for any comments/suggestions.
