We are new to owning a pool and in the process of constructing a patio and deck around our 30' round AG pool and we have not been able to lower the pH and T/A. The pool is less than a month old. We purchased the TF-100 kit and here are our results:
pH= 8.2 (maybe higher, it's REALLY red)
CYA= 0 (? I think...I can always see the black dot even when I use the whole bottle.)
I don't know how to test for Borate.
We keep adding muratic acid, but it really hasn't changed anything. Is it really important to balance it now? - we will be closing the pool late because of the construction (probably mid October) but no one is swimming (except my husband in order to vaccuum the pine needles.)
Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks!
