Opening our pool tomorrow so I did my first test of the year.
Ph: Below 7.0 - my test kit doesn't go any lower. The tested water is sort of yellow...
I'm confused as to what to do first. The is only my second year with my pool so I'm still a newbie.
In what order should I start tackling these numbers? Do I add everything at once or handle one issue at a time?
Last year I never had to adjust my ph. it was always dead on 7.5. We got TONS of snow this winter and also have had TONS of rain the past few weeks. I wonder if that could have affected the ph? Pool school is telling me to use borax or soda ash. Can't I just use plain old baking soda?
* I use bleach for my chlorine needs.
