I just had a water delivery to fill my pool about 3 days ago and my test kit came in the mail yesterday so I went ahead and tested the water.
I have a 24ft x 52" 14,400 gallon pool. My results are as follows:
FC tested 0
PH Tested 8
TA Tested 360
CH Tested 260
CYA Tested over 30
So I have been reading a bunch of mixed approaches on the proper way to do this and poolcalculator says to first lower the PH with muriatic acid.
Some people are saying to pour the acid in directly in front of the return, some people are saying to first dilute it in a bucket and pour it across the pool and some people are saying either way, the acid will eat through my liner. Can anyone shed some light on the correct approach!
Thank you in advance!
