I know this is covered in many places but I guess I am not quite understanding everything. I opened my pool a few days ago and it was quite cloudy (white). I can barely see the shallow end floor and see nothing in the deep end. I have my pump running continuous. I use borax for pH control and bleach for Cl. I have dumped about 18 gallons of 6% bleach in with the following results.
CYA <30 probably closer to 0
This is the first time ever my CYA has been low usually it is on the high side. The pool place said to put a gallon of muriatic acid in to lower the TA but I know it will also lower the pH so I was going to wait for a response from the forum. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as I will be traveling out of town in 2 weeks and would like to have this pretty much resolved for my family with the heat pump and chlorinator on line.
Thank you in advance.
