I have a new 27' x 52" above ground pool that's been full for 3 days. Am using a SWG and salt test this morning was 3200 ppm. Am getting free chlorine reading at 1 (am still running SWG around clock to get levels up). CYA was 30 and added 4 lbs more this morning. My real question: pH is at 8.2 and TA is at 270...The pool school recommendations are a TA of 60-90 and I know the pH should be no more that 7.8...sooo...which do I tackle lowering first and what's the best method? oh, yeah, I also have one of those return outlet fountains running all the time too which should theoretically help lower pH thru aeration right? That doesn't seem to be working as pH 3 days ago was 7.5.
Would appreciate some professional help!
