OK, so we still haven't moved into house but I tested pool today because I discovered tab feeder didn't have anything in it so I wanted to know my levels. I had a local pool store check behind me since it's the first time and some of the tests are so subjective.
Here's what I got:
FC 2 ppm
TA 70 ppm (pool store 75 ppm)
CYA 50 (pool store got 60 ppm)
CH 370 (pool store got 190 ppm so actually low)
I know the TA is low, but otherwise there is no real 911 for a pool that has been running itself for 2 weeks. Thank goodness! I also discovered that the pool has an ozone generator on it so that does a lot of the sanitizing and allows the FC levels to run a little lower, I guess.
Given that my pH is high and TA low, should I bring TA up first and worry about bringing pH down later? We're still not living here, so I can't do too much that needs constant attention yet.
