    Pool calculator says addd 19 oz muriatic acid and 128 oz of calcium chloride...do i need a pool supply store for those two and should i wait to add those things till i run filter tonite. I run eight hrs about 9:30 when we r done night swimming. Current levels ok for son to swim in today?

    Moved your topic to a different forum since it didn't belong in the outdoor kitchen forum.

    Yes, adding acid to lower your pH a little is fine. Have you added CYA at all yet? I'd add enough to get you to 30 but don't retest it for another week since it takes a while for the CYA to fully dissolve.

    Since you have a liner pool, you don't need to increase your CH as it isn't necessary in vinyl pools.

    Based upon those suggestions, the pool water chem readings should be ok for swimming. Just don't let him get in until newly added acid has had a chance to circulate for 30 minutes to and hour.

    Definitely get the cya in there. That's the sunscreen for your FC. Without it you'll lose all your FC and then your asking for algae to set up shop.

    Also adding cya will also lower ph.
