Hi !! I am new to this site so not sure if my post is in the correct section. If not let me know and I'll move it to the correct section. Just had the pool resurfaced with exposed aggregate finish last month. The finish was not perfect so the pool company dumped about 10 cases of acid in the pool last week 5/17/13 to got the surface right and we still are having problems getting the numbers within normal limits. Everyday this past week we have been taking water samples to the local pool supplier and the tell us to put in total alkalinity increaser( sodium hydrogen carbonate), stabilizer( cyanuric acid hydrate) and PH plus( sodium carbonate). The pool is about 17,000 gallons. Does anyone have any ideas to help get this water chemistry within normal limits? Below are recent levels per pool suppliers system.
Total chlorine - 6.0 ppm
Free chlorine - 6.0 ppm
Combined chlorine - 0.0 ppm
pH - 6.0
Acid Demand - no numbers/not tested
Base Demand - 10
Total Alkalinity - 25 ppm
Calcium Hardness - 999 ppm
Stabilizer - 50 ppm
Total Dissolved Solids - 2,900 ppm
Salt - 2,000 ppm ( the pool resurfacing company has not connected the salt generator system yet)
Pump has been running non stop.
Thanks for any help!!
