Okay - I am ready to try and get rid of the yellow stain in my pool and balance my water..... need input. I did the vitamin C test and it worked on the stain so bought ascorbic acid and want to do that treatment but want to make sure my ducks are in a row... I used my test kit for the first time and after flashing back to high school chemistry class came up with these levels to the best of my ability:
We have been using triclor tabs but took them out to lower the chlorine before adding the ascorbic acid. Question - is circulate different from the basic filter setting and if so how do I achieve it??? Is there a particular sequestering agent that you prefer - I have Metal Free from Natural Chemistry on hand - will that work? When do I add the polyquat 60? before, during, after?? When you say Arm and Hammer washing soda - is that different from baking soda? How long after treatment before you can expect to swim??
Any input is appreciated... please use very simple terms and treat me like the complete novice that I am!! I am hoping if I can get rid of the stain that two pool stores were unable to that my husband will be more open to the BBB method. I look forward to your feedback and thank you in advance.
