CH - calcium hardness 125 ppm
CYA - cyanuric acid...aka stabilizer/conditioner 50
I tested my pool about 3 weeks ago and the CYA was 150 or more. I drained the pool about half way and it was around 100. So, I had to drain again. I drained it and left about 1/4 of the water. I just tested the CYA and its at 50!!!!! Now that I have that taken care of, what do I need to do? I'm a little lost. My readings are above. I used the TF-100 test kit.
According to the pool calculator I have to add the following:
1) 75 oz of 6% bleach. The beach that I bough says 8.25% Sodium Hypochlorite. Do I add 75 oz of this bleach?
2) 22 oz of muriatic acid
3) 127 oz baking soda
4) 253 oz calcium chloride. Is this the same thing as Calcium Hardness Increaser? I bought it at Home Depot. I couldn't find calcium chloride anywhere.
My test kit did not come with a Borate test. Do I need to purchase one? If so, where do you recommend?
My last question. How should I add all these chemicals? All at the same time or space them out? Any recommendation would be awesome.
