    Friends Pool Numbers

    Trying to help a friend. His TA and PH are out of wack. TF-100 Test numbers

    FC=1ppm
    CC=0
    CYA=70
    CH=100
    ph=below 6.8
    TA=Was pink after adding the two drops R0007 and 5 drops of R-0008 does this mean less than 10?

    How do I tackle the TA and PH? The pool is 13000gallon Above ground liner non SWG. Should I bring up the TA with baking soda using 183oz indicated in pool math than bring the PH up with borax? Never had to deal with TA and PH this bad.


    Thanks!

    I would try seesawing.

    First add Baking soda to get to 50
    Then test and add borax to get to 7.2
    Recheck pH and TA and adjust pH again, since the first borax might not have been enough.

    And so on, bringing things up by degrees. Poolmath isn't good for huge adjustments so work up.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    Agreed with above advice. And once those two are in order, don't forget to get the FC up! CYA is already pretty high, so chlorine tabs are not ideal
