I drained and refilled my pool 2 weeks ago because my hardness and dissolved solids were very high, and it it was advised by my pool store.
I dropped the ball and it was 2 weeks before I got in to get my start up chemicals.
My water tested as:
Free Chlorine 0
total available chlorine 0
calcium hardness 200
cyanuric acid 0
total dissolved solids 800
the store recommended, 2 lbs of shock, 2 gallons of conditioner and ad 1 bottle of phosphates. I wanted a get a second opinion from the bored if this sounded right?
my pool is a 16,000 gallon pebble tec pool. it was a salt pool but my chlorination died and have used chlorine tabs for the last 2 years. istarted tabs in my floater right after I filled the pool.
