Hi Folks, found this site in a search and I've spent many hours looking at it, reading the info, etc... before deciding I needed to register. I might have missed this info but I was wondering if there's an order to balancing the chemicals. Say, CYA first, FC second, Ph third, etc... for maximum results. Like many others, I've spent hundreds of $$$$ on chemicals from the local pool store with poor results so I've decided to give the bleach, borax, and CYA a try. I'm starting from scratch with an on-going algae problem. I tested last night and my CYA is not reading, my FC is very low and I've not been able to keep it up this season, PH and Alk is good.
I've never posted anywhere so if I'm doing this wrong please correct me.
