Howdy. Been getting down the basics of my pool for the past few weeks on this site. I started the process of maintain my hot tub now.
I had about 5 people in the tub a couple weeks ago and the water has been a bit cloudy ever since.
Tonight I started as follows.
Initial readings with K-2006
Bromine: I couldn't get the water to turn pink with adding the DPD powder, leading me to believe my bromine was very low?
I added muriatic acid (amount based of calculator), then sodium bromide (amount based on labeling), refilled my floater w/ 3 bromine tabs, then about 2/3 cup of 8% bleach.
FC: 6, which I multiplied by 2.25 to get a bromine level of 13.5ppm
pH: Still around 7.8 so I added more MA per pool calculator.
I hope I understood this thread correctly and I'm on the right track!
