Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and have been reading and learning a lot about pools and pool chemistry.
I am a total noob when it comes to pool. We just got a lazy L shaped vinyl pool (SWG) installed. I am trying to get the volume info from out pool contractor. In the meantime, my rough calculation says 24,000 gallons.
I had a lot of problem keeping my chlorine level in check and decided to no longer listen to the pool store.
The TF-100 kit arrived and here are my results (I hope I did the tests correctly).
I need help as the numbers are out of whack when comparing to the article on "water balance for SWGs":
FC = 2 ppm
CC = 0
pH = 8.2
TA = 180
CH = 230
CYA = can't get the dot to disappear
What do I need to do first? bring the pH and TA down?
Thanks in advance
