I am new to the site and reading through everything is making m head spin. Here is my situation, our pool is about 8 yrs old (we bought the house about 5 yrs ago) and we have been maintaining. We have staining and have just been shocking and putting in Chlorine tabs. I left this job to my husband and he is now wanting to give it to me.
Our pool is 11,000 gal and plaster. I checked the levels today and here is what I got:
TA 170 ppm
CH 620 ppm
CYA 90 ppm
My goal is to lower the CYA and start stain removal. Realistically I do not want to partially drain the pool - we live in Houston and we have really hard water here.
Any advice on where I should start? Stains then CYA/BBB?
