So I let the pool cleaning company go after the first year of owning our new house which has a pool. I like doing things on my own so I've been reading your site for the past 4 months trying to learn as much as I can and have really enjoyed it and finally decided to start doing all of the testing and maintenance on my own. Last month we had the pool company install a new pump, easy touch control panel, salt cell and solar panels so I'm just getting used to using the new system. So here I am ready to post my first question. I tested my water and here are my results using the TF100:
The water is clear.
My question is what should I tackle first regarding adjusting the chemistry? Should I tackle the ph level using acid and bring it down to 7.2 and then aerate to bring down my TA at the same time while the ph slowly rises back to 7.6-7.8?
Or tackle FC first to bring it up to at least 3 first then wait a few days and retest and then tackle the ph and TA.
Your reading said not to adjust ph using acid and FC using bleach at the same time and to give the pool a break for a day or so to ensure the acid and bleach don't react.
Thanks for all your help in advance. Let me know if I can provide any other helpful info.
