    Old pool New owner

    We are closing Monday on the house. I tested the pool with TF-100 test kit and the results are
    C 0.1
    Ph less than 6.2
    TA 10
    Cya 0
    What need addressing first? I did read The Pool School but still need help. The water looks pretty clear (can see liner pattern 8 feet deep) Thanks.

    Work on the pH & TA first and then get some FC in the pool. I'd use washing soda or soda ash for the ph/TA adjustment to begin with since you need to raise both.

    If it truly has zero CYA you need to get some in there soon also.

    Re: Old pool New owner

    Went back to new house and got a water sample. The lawn guy has been putting 3" tabs in when he felt like it.
    Tested water after adding 10 lbs. washing soda, water was real cloudy.
    C .5-1
    Ph 8.2 + (just an hour after adding soda)
    TA 70
    CYA less than 20 (dot disappeared at top of vial)
    Thanks for the help.
