I recently finished a rehab of a neglected pool. Have it filled and would love to get this balanced and happy.
Also, unless any test results make the pool unsafe for swimmers, I expect to host a graduation party tomorrow afternoon. Just something to keep in mind if that in any way makes a difference in the recommendations.
Using the TF test kit my results last night were:
FC - 11.5
PH - 6.8
TA - 100
CH - 90
CYA - 0
CC - .5
The pool is crystal clear now.
I aimed for a 6ppm FC last night and added about 300oz of 6% bleach. I am confused as to why I have such a high reading. Thinking maybe I didn't let the pool circulate enough after adding?
I added 7 lbs of stabilizer last night and expect my CYA to be in the low 30s. I believe I read I should wait a week to test that now.
I know the ph is too low...possibly a byproduct of adding the CYA yesterday. I see that adding Borax will bring the ph up, but also the TA which I believe to already be in spec. I also see that aeration will raise ph without moving my TA. How quick a process is that?
I welcome any other thoughts.
