Water on opening is slightly green, but unusually good for my pool at opening, thanks to BBB last year!
I am going to shock to clear up the algae, but my numbers are below. I would appreciate help deciding the next step in two areas:
1. I am not sure what order to address the pH/TA issues that I have. Obviously my pH and TA are low and need to come up and adjusting one will affect the other. Do I add the Pool Calculator's suggested soda ash (pH) or baking soda (TA) first? I love what borates did for my pool last year. Do I need to add Borax and would that affect the pH and TA, meaning that I should do that first?
2. Do the numbers suggest any other issues?
pH 6.8 (or lower)
