First of all, thank you for this site! I now feel like I (almost) have an understanding of how to keep my pool clear.
Test as of 30 minutes ago.
Pool calculator says to add 75oz bleach, 3.8oz muriatic acid, 85oz baking soda, and 32oz stabilizer. Now if I add the baking soda, that will also raise my pH. So will I need to add more than the 3.8 oz muriatic acid, or do I add one first and then test and correct the other? If so, in what order do I fix the levels? Now I also see that adding stabilizer will lower the pH, if I am adding CYA do I need to even add muriatic acid?
I see that it can take a week to raise CYA, can we be swimming while we are doing it? Is there a benefit to using liquid stabilizer vs granules or vice versa?
Finally (I think), the pool calculator is showing my CSI to be -0.02. It says less than -0.06 is a problem for plaster pools so I should be ok at my level?
Thank you everyone! I feel like I am finally getting very close to where I should be.
