Had a pool installed last Tuesday....got it filled and all plumbed finally yesterday.
Took my readings , used pool math to get the proper levels...
Added 19lbs of baking soda to raise my TA....it was 2ppm, now 110ppm. Is that level ok? I have read anywhere form 80-120ppm is ok, but pool school recommends 90ppm.
My ph was 7.2 at fill and I haven't done anything with that as baking soda will raise ph a bit, but how long should I wait before I add borax?
I appreciate the help.....I never really payed attention to water balance as I do now , and I realize how much chlorine I burned through every season !!
