I've had a leak in my pool since I opened it on May 17. I was losing about 600gal/day so I wasn't looking for perfection in my numbers. I've been using 99%trichlor tabs since I have about 10 lbs of them left and my CYA was being diluted with the make-up water.
I've found and patched the leak so it's time to get this thing perfect. Here are my numbers:
I intend to continue using the trichlor tabs until my CYA comes up into range. How long should this take?
I don't fully understand the difference between washing soda and baking soda for TA and the affect that they have on Ph. Should I use one over the other since both my Ph and TA are low?
My local ACE Hardware has:
20MT Borax, 4lb for $5.99
A&H Super Washing Soda, 55oz for $4.49
A&H Baking Soda, 4lb for $3.99
HTH 10% Liquid Chlorinator, 1g for $3.99
Are these prices fair?
