    Tropical Depression Isaac and a lot of water

    Had to pump the pool down four times in the last 5 days. Between the afternoon storms and Isaac the chemicals are off.
    PH = 7.8 Goal 7.4
    TA 70 Goal 100
    CH 150 Goal 300
    CYA 30 Goal 70
    Salt 2900 Goal 3350

    Put the figures into the calculator. Needs attention. Quick check, what is the order of chemicals to be added? I usually do the acid, salt, and baking soda at the same time. Then the Calcium chloride and finally the Stabilizer. What do you guys think??

    pH is fine
    TA is fine
    CH is low for a plaster pool
    CYA is low.
    Salt is a little low.

    I'd do CH first, then salt, then CYA. You can do them all at basically the same time.

    I'm assuming your FC/CC is OK and doesn't need attention - is that right? Bama has a handle on this more than I do so I would follow his lead...

    FC and CC are perfect. The calculator says to add 222 oz by weight of Calcium chloride seems high to me. Am I overly cautious?

    222 oz is what I get too.

    Thanks Bama. I sometimes question my own readings.
