Just found this board and have been cruising and surfing all the interesting info. I just want to say that now I am really confused. I am very new to pool upkeep, my first time. I am helping out with a community pool in the state of GA. Our state requires frequent county inspections, and I am afraid I will not pass the next inspection. Here are the current specs;
Pool size: 90,000 gals
Pumps: twin 3hp (24/7)
Filters: twin triton II 140’s (24/7)
Flow: ~320 GPM
Chlorination: Auto (Trichlor 3” pucks)
Drains: (2) Bottom
Returns: (10) bottom
Depth: 3.5 / 5.0 / 4.0 (ft)
pH: less than 7.0
TA was greater than 300, chlorine was 7.0, and pH was 7.8
I have added 31 gal of Muriatic acid to get the TA to 110. Now to get the pH up I have added 61 lbs of 20 Mule Team Borax, and 50 lbs of Soda Ash. The TA and/or pH is not moving!! What am I doing wrong?
I apologize if this has been done before.
