Been playing around with the chemicals a bit for the new pool and here's what the pool store came up with:
Their chemical recommendations say to Shock the pool for one thing, when the stuff in pool school says not until it's over .5
They say to add 1.5 gallons of muriatic acid. I don't care what they say on the trichlor since I'm trying BBB.
I punch all those numbers in the calculator, and it tells me to add 26 oz. of muriatic to get to a PH of 7.4 and 74 oz. of bleach to bump FC up to 4. I also used a target level there on the TA of 120.
Is the pool store number on the massive muriatic acid addition trying to bring down my PH.....AND,,,,,,,my TA to 120 or so and will that accomplish fixing the PH and the TA? Why the big difference? Which would you do? Your help is appreciated. Thanks.
