Our pool was finished with plaster and water 9/23-24. We put in a SWG, however we were told to wait to add salt until spring. The pool builder added a clarifier, 1/2 gallon of Muriatic Acid and now it's had 4 pucks of 3" chlorine tabs.
I ordered a test kit, but only have test strips for the time being.
From the test strips it's just a guess on the numbers, but I do know that chlorine is very low, PH is ok around 7.2, TA is extremely low.
Should I for now take a sample of water to the pool supply store and let them tell me what to get for now?
Or should I add bleach to raise chlorine, add baking soda to raise TA, and possibly Borax for stabilizing?
Our swim season is pretty much over, and I will be keeping the pool open.
Thanks in advance.
