I set up my pool, filled it with softened well water and shocked it to 10 with Clorox (late afternoon) and I added the 200 lbs of salt. At the end of the next day I shocked it again to 10 and got my SWG installed and running at 7 hours. I am now in the process of dissolving 64oz of cya to bring my cya level up to 55 initially and will bring it up to about 75 in a couple weeks.
My initial test (hth 6 way)
FC 0 (the initial shock burned off)
PH 8.4 (MA added to reduce ph to 7.6)
TH 50 (total hardness according to the hth 6 way kit)
From what I've been reading about TA, I need to lower the PH to 7.0-7.2 and fabricate a way to aerate the water to lower the TA. Is this plan correct? Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated.
