Hi everyone. I just bought a house with a pool about three weeks ago and I have Ben learning how to care for it. So far everything has been great. The water is crystal clear blue with no issues. The previous owners took care of it themselves and seem to have done a nice job. My problem is, I am not an expert on pool care and now I have one to care for!
I recently took a water sample to the pool store to pick up some chlorine tablets for the chlorinator and below are the results:
Water temp is about 85 right now
They recommended that I raise the TA with 13 lbs of what I assume is expensive baking soda, which will raise the ph too high and add muriatic acid (0.5 pt) to lower the ph and also add some very expensive scale inhibitor due to the high CH.
My questions are, how are my results? What would you do? I am thinking raise the ph slightly to 7.5 and maintain from there?
It is a Blue Haven built IG white plaster, 23,625 gallons. Hayward equipment, 2.0 HP pump, cartridge filter, heater (don't recall brand at moment) and some kind of oxidizer box (???) which I think adds ozone?
Thank you to all for having such a great forum!
