Alrightee. In wanting to add borates to my picture, I added a box of dissolved-in-pool-water borax (76 oz) and muriatic acid (about 60 oz) to my little pool last night. To help stir it up I went around the edge of the pool scooping up gallons of water and throwing it back in, probably a dozen times. I let the filter run all night.
This morning my test numbers were pretty nutty. My chlorine levels, off the chart to begin with before I started (I had just finished adding the rest of the dichlor to get CYA into the system, so I wasn't too concerned. That will burn off, right?), are still off the chart, we're talking orange on a chart that reads up to yellow. The ph says to add acid, which I did, but I'm thinking I've already exceeded the recommended level.
Is this all going to work out?
