New pool owner here...bought a house with a pool that is about 9 years old.
In ground pool
100000 litres approx
Located in Ontario, Canada (pool is closed for winter obviously)
I have the TF-100 test kit
CYA is about 35 (hard to tell but roughly)
TA is 130
PH is 7.5 after putting a bit over a litre of muriatic acid in the pool 2 days ago. My PH tends to climb which will lead to a question about aeration later
TC is drops down to 0.5 24 hours after putting in 2.5L of 10% chlorine...a few hours after the chlorine is added and next morning still it's usually >4
So my questions are:
- I need to lower my TA. I bought this kit: http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B003...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
However, I have no idea how to install it as it hasn't arrived yet...Do I unscrew the existing return jet or does it install somehow over the existing one? Can I do this while there is water covering it or do I have to empty the pool (I hope not)
- Is it normal for my chlorine to drop down to 0.5 24 hours after putting in the 2.5 litres (the pool calculator suggests this)? I have the pump running about 10 hours a day during the day
Thanks so much in advance!
