We just bought a house with a in ground pool.
Took the water sample to get tested with these results from Warehouse Pools in Austin:
Free Chlorine 0.2ppm
Total Chlorine 3.0ppm
Combined Chlorine 2.8ppm
Cyanuric Acid 300ppm
Total Dissolved Solids 2200ppm
I'm around 1/3 draining the pool right now and then found this forum. Am I doing the right thing? Draining and starting from scratch? From what I've been able to gather since yesterday is that I have to drain the pool completely because of the CyA level and switch to liquid chlorine.
Don't know much about pools besides doing flips into them..
Water is scare in Texas right now and I really don't want to waste and drain the pool if I don't have to, but from what I can gather, I just might have to because of health reasons if I have kids or multiple people using the pool. It'll cost me over $800 to fill the pool back up with bulk water delivery as I'm on a well and don't want to tap 20,000 gallons out of it...
