I have not started the pool yet I'm still dealing with algae at the moment just filtering
I'm wondering should I test the water before I first shock the pool with algae?
I decided it wouldn't hurt to test it so yesterday i got
I added about 12 lbs of baking soda .. 24 hours later
there is a storm coming and wondering if I should hold off shocking with bleach
and just add some acid to bring the Ph down .. wouldn't that take my ta back to 40?
so acid to lower ph then more baking soda .. repeat .. then shock?
