New to pool care. Water test results below.
2 FC - Free Chlorine
2 CC or TC - Combined Chlorine or Total Chlorine
8.0 pH -
130 TA - Total Alkalinity
250 CH - Calcium Hardness
25 CYA - Cyanuric Acid (stabilizer/conditioner)
I added muriatic acid and the pH is now 7.6
I got the water tested at Leslie's and also used test strips and pH test kit. Getting a better test kit (read the forum for great advice).
I forgot to put in my signature this is a salt water pool.
What do I do next? In reading the forum I see several suggestions, running waterfalls to aerate to start bringing down TA. Keep watching pH, add MA as needed. What do I do about CYA, when, how, and what order. I kinda understand the details of the water care listed here but am not at all confident in my understanding. I have looked over the pool calculator, but not quite sure how to use it.
Thanks in advance for the advice.
