I bought a new house and with it a pool. I'm new to a pool, though I am used to maintaining my hot tub. The pool was closed when we bought it and didn't have a cover. With 2 mature trees next to it and a huge (80 ft) tree that dumps about 60% of its leaves and now spring debris into the pool, I'll be buying a cover this fall. In the mean time I have removed all the debris I can, filled it, and ran the pump can cleaned out the pump basket until it remained clean between checks (about 20 mins run time). I scrubbed the pool down with a brush and now have split pea soup. I haven't added anything yet but did test it (TF-100) and unsurprisingly found zero CYA, which leads me to my question. Do I need to raise this completely before I even bother adding bleach or can I start adding both at the same time? Also my PH is 8.2 (TA 150), should I adjust this after I get clear or before I start?
