We let our pool go over the winter. Finally got it filtering a few days ago. Have done several jugs of bleach and scooped the big stuff out.now the chlorine is back down to pretty much nothing. So I tested everything today and this is where I stand:
Cya is barely registering so I know I need stabilizer.
pH high 8.2
TA low 30
Salt low 570.
I know I need stabilizer first so my chlorine doesnt evaporate. And then bleach. ..lots of bleach. And I need salt so eventually I can use my swg.
I'm confused on the ta and ph. I know adding baking soda week raise ta. But will also raise the pH. I know chlorine lowers pH. So not sure if I should add baking soda? acid? both? Neither?
