Would you believe the snow has erased my memory of how to care for my pool? Every year I have to refresh my memory about what and how much to add.
I have topped off the pool and I'm ready to start adding stuff...
Here's what I have, and what I plan to add. Let me know if I'm off base anywhere.
FC : 0 (plan to add 565 oz of 8% to bring it to a shock of 11)
TA: 150 ppm (would like this to be more like 90 but not sure what to do)
CYA still seeing the black dot at 20. (plan to add 88oz stabilizer and see where that gets me. Ideally I would like it to be 35 ppm)
We fought copper all last year. In hopes of getting ahead of the game, I plan to do a large treatment of HTH metal out before I shock the pool, then do the recommended maintenance dose weekly. I read somewhere that the metal out works better if there is little chlorine in the pool. Because of this, would it be OK to put the metal out in this afternoon, then put in my CYA socks and chlorine this evening?
