opened up my pool yesterday up here in upstate ny... water was looking pretty clear but alot of algea on the bottom
I have a mesh cover so this is usual...
Im testing with a t-100 or maybe it tf100... the taylor one that is nice and expensive.
i shocked the heck out of it...
Raised alk to 80 from 50
brought my PH down to 7.6 last night from over 8 when i opened it... now about 24 hours later its running at 7.2-7.3. I think at some point i read its easier to get the water clear with the Ph on the low side... true or false? if im to raise it my plan is to use borax as that should raise the alk as well...if thats wrong, blame it on 6 months of pool chemistry rust
Lastly, my FC is between .5 and 1. my CC is over 30 (i stopped after 60 drops)...... should i just keep pumping up my FC to 15 or so regardless of CC?
The water is clearing very quickly....just want to keep it going and let that sand filter do its magic
