Have a 15 by 30 Pebbletech pool. I have been using tricholor pucks which I know is the cause of my high CYA and shocked recently with the gallon jugs of sodium hypochlorate from home depot (Kemtek) which explains my high FC , but would appreciate some options moving forward. Draining the pool is a slow go process but in the heat not sure if its a good idea at this time. Here are the results:
PH 6.8 (low because of high FC?)
TA 50 (it turned yellow on drop 5 instead of blue, do I stop there?)
CYA 140 - I did the tap/pool water mix to get a more accurate reading- Filled bottle to lower mark with pool water, upper mark with tap water, poured half out and added the solution - Black dot disappeared at 70
I am really concerened with the low PH but is that because of my high FC?
Thanks for any assistance
