I have a new pool with a SWG and am trying to get the water chemistry balanced. I got my Tf-100 kit yesterday and got the following results:
CC .5 (so I guess this means TC = 4.0?)
CH 570 (we have very hard water here and the pool store says there is nothing to do about it?)
Salt Test strip says 3240 (SWG says between 3000 and 3500 depending on time of day)
I will be adding more CYA to bring it up to 70 over the next several days (going slow to make sure I don't add to much).
So, using the pool calculator I added enough muratic acid to bring pH down to 7.2 and will be aerating with my fountain to try and bring the TA down.
Anything else I should be doing?
Also, was wondering why my TA is so high in such a new pool? Is is because of our hard water?
