Just started up new pool on Friday afternoon. Pool supply equipment supplier added MA at startup. I took my first set of chemical test on Saturday morning.
I checked the PH on Sunday morning and it was bewtween 7.8 and 8. I added 1.5 gal MA to get PH back to 7.2. My concern is that the TA is too high, so I am adding MA to keep the acid at 7.2, and trying to aerate with the return jets in hopes of getting my TA down. I plan to add the first dose of chlorine tomorrow.
I have tri-chlor tabs and shock, as well as CYA. Any suggestions on how to proceed would be appreciated.
