Trying to get chemical balance correct in my pool. I bought TF-100 kit last week and read your website to get a better handle on the situation and have been checking PoolMath and adding chemicals slowly and testing every day to try to get the correct balance. My pH was very low and all the kids' eyes were burning. Cl has also been very low for a long time. Water is clear and all looks good otherwise.
Here is my current situation:
From K-1000, Cl=3 and pH=7.5
PoolMath's FC goal says 7-12, but in another spot on the website, target is showing as 3 (or 3-7). I have it set to use TFP goal levels. What should be my target? Should I continue to add bleach?
Should I try to further increase pH? (using washing soda)
What does the K-1000 Cl reading represent? Is it TC?
Should I try to reduce CH and CYA? I know I'd have to drain some pool water.
Your website has been fantastic in helping me understand what is going on so far. Thanks for any advice!
