I got really super delinquent with our pool once it started cooling down. We threw a leaf cover over thankfully but nothing else for a while. Need to get the pool clear so we can close it before it gets too cold. Right now the weather is 50-60's during day and high 30s at night.
So my pool is of course GREEN but not too murky. Cleaned off the leaf cover and checked the water today.
pH is low = 6.8
TA is really low = 10
FC was like 3. CYA 60. I shocked it today, rechecked and it was still at 18, overcast cool day, don't know water temp but it was pretty cold. Got the sand filter running constantly. Hopefully keeping it at shock level I can have it cleared up and can close it.
Should I go ahead and get the pH/TA fixed too? I tested it before I shocked it. I know at shock level I can't really recheck it as I think it will show even lower. I have a whole bottle of pH Up that was given to us. Can I use it to raise the pH and TA?
