I have a TFP test kit and I use aqua check strips to confirm.
My pool has been out for a few weeks. I had a pin hole in the heat exchanger in my Hayward H200 heater (go figure with such low Alk). I shut of the pump for about 2 weeks, had to add around 2500 gallons to the pool. I pulled the heat exhanger and brazed the pin hole. All is well, everything is holding I am leak free (for now).
The pool is crystal clear, but I am back to zero!
I have never seen the pool so low!
The calulator says I need 39 pounds of Backing Soda, I'm sure I do, but I've never had to add so much. Any guidance on where to start? I had been battling low TA and Ph this year, I was slowly adding Borax, but wasn't that dilligent with it.
This is a great chance to get my TA and PH in line, the low numbers just freak me out.
Should I add any Shock as I start this adventure!
