Hi everyone. I had a real problem getting my pool chemistry just right so I just emptied, scrubbed, and refilled. It finished filling yesterday morning, and I really want to get it right this time. It is a 1722 gallon Intex pool. So far, I only added 6 oz of HTH metal control last night...the water is still extremely orange (now 9am). I have several questions:
Should I add more metal control or get a different product?
Should I wait now to adjust pH, alkalinity and chlorine until the orange water clears up?
I heard somewhere that I can get away with ignoring TA? Is that right?
Another thing I am stumped on is how long to wait between adding any of the necessary chemicals (using pool calculator)...can everything be added within minutes of each other or do some need a full night?
Thanks so much for you help!
