I had the pool replastered about 10 days ago. I paid the PB to have a guy set the pool up and the first thing he does is come by one day and pour in 9 gal of acid and leave. The next day he comes by and dumps 12 boxes of Arm/Hammer baking soda and hits a few lickes with the brush and leaves. The next day the water looks like I poured milk in there. I get him over there and he says he has never seen that before. He leaves and comes back and puts who knows what in there and a couple of days later it's now clear.
I just had my water tested at the local pool supply and got these numbers.
total Clorine 7.6
Free Clorine 6.5
adj TA 40
Tot. Hardness 173
I have a colored plaster/blue.
They tell me to use a non clorine shock so as to not bleach out the plaster on the floor of the pool.
Also suggested Pool Plus to get rid of the metals
Suggested 30 lbs of Balance Pak 100 to raise the TA
print out says to add 10.5 pints of Muriatic Acid.
I am trying to go with the Clorox for the clorine instead of the tabs. Also how to "shock" when necessary when it rains.
