Season's greetings fellow TFP members! (Pool season that is!)
I've decided to go with a SWG this year and have everything hooked up and have performed my first full water chemistry test:
(Had some Trichlor pucks in a floater all winter)
pH: 7 (Goal = 7.5)
TA: 40 (Goal = 70)
CYA: 50 (Goal = 70)
Salt estimate: ~3600
(based on 12 bags of salt)
I have some Dichlor so I could use that to shock and raise the CYA. I also have borax and baking soda. I was thinking I should shock last so I can be sure my TA and pH adjustments are right.
My question is in what order should I be adjusting the chemistry? Pool Calculator says to add 90oz by volume of Baking Soda. Am I correct in thinking this is step 1?
