Ok...Opened my pool last week and everything has gone smooth. I tested my water this past Sunday and here were my readings:
FC - 3.0 (good)
CC - 0.0 (good)
pH - 7.6 (good)
TA - 100 (high)
CYA - 30 (low)
CH - 100 (low)
So, my plan of attack was to first bring the CH up, then adjust CYA and then lower my TA. Went to the pool store yesterday to pick up 8 lbs of stabilizer and 25 lbs of CH increaser.
I added the CH increaser yesterday afternoon and retested the CH this morning. It was at 240.
Here's the problem though. I happened to look at my receipt this morning and it says that I purchased TA increaser!! I'm hoping that the guy filled out the receipt wrong, but I have no way of knowing as I through the container out this morning and trash pickup already occurred. To pile it on, I'm out of town and can't just go out back and check the TA to see if it's through the roof. I'm freaking out that I might have made a huge, stupid **s mistake! So my questions are:
- Is there anyway that TA increaser would have increased the CH? If not, then this would be clear indication that the stuff I put in was in fact CH increaser.
- If it was TA increaser, is this going to cause any damage? I will not be back in town until Friday to address it. Should I call a friend to have him go check and adjust it before then?
Thanks for any help you can provide!
