I just got a SW pool built and read most of your pool school posts on how to get it properly set up. Unfortunately I didn't follow your instructions as detailed as I should. I was anxious to get the CYA and the borates in and was due to take a weekend trip and wanted to get them in before I left so that the pool could run and my boys could swim when I got back. Well I didn't get my TA down to the recommended levels before I added the CYA and borates. Now I'm wondering if I'm stuck with a high TA (unless I want to drain and refill my pool, which I don't want to do)?
I'm having to regularly add acid and I think its just b/c my TA is so high. Any thoughts?
