I feel like I am NOT getting the hang of this. Our brand new pool startup was about a week ago, we had no chemicals in the pool as the builder did not get us started with chemicals, and we did not know to ask them to. So we started from scratch ourselves and are really wanting to get a handle on this pool ourselves.
I got my TF100 test kit....here are my results from today:
We started out with 0 CYA, but shocked the pool with 3 bags of chlorbrite per the "poolstore" guy.....then put a couple of pucks in the dek-clor hole as we were told.....now it looks like I have WAY too much chlorine in there and have about maxed out the allowable CYA....
We have more muriatic acid and will add more tonight......I used Poolmath.....and this is the only thing it says to do? Is there something that I am missing here?
I am worried about the chlorine and the CYA level being so high already. We haven't purchased any liquid bleach to use yet, but what % chlorine bleach should we buy.....and when do you think we will need it?
Thank you for your invaluable help!
