So, our pool is only a week old but we've decided to have friends over for the 4th in a couple days. Our water is clear and I've been doing fine with it, just not sure what special precautions I might need to take for the holiday. We'll probably have 20+ people in and out, about half or more are kids. Do I just bump the chlorine a little bit?? Everything seems to be OK except TA and CH are high -- fountain should arrive today to start working on lowering the TA as I dump more and more acid in to keep the pH under control! It drifted from 7.5 at the start of the week to over 7.8 with just the addition of CYA and bleach.
FC - 4.3
CC or TC - 0
pH - 7.8+ (not 8, but not quite 7.8 - have added 1 gallon of MA in the past 24 hours to start moving it down)
TA - 550
CH - 475
CYA - 36 (added second half 2 days ago, not testable yet)
21600 gallon 30' round vinyl ABG.
