Hi all, I just did my first water test and want to get my pool ready for the weekend. I don't have the ALEX results in front of me but essentially my pH is too high and alkalinity too low. I have a 100,000L (~25,000 gal) pool and the recommended treatment is 31 pounds of Balance Pak 100 and about 4 pounds of Lo'N Slo. I assume I do not need to use the BioGuard products the pool store stocks and am fine going with other brands, would they all have the same proportions of ingredients? I.e. is 5 pounds of the balance pak 100 the same as 5 pounds of the Lowe's AquaChem brand?
I will be reading through the other articles on this site to continue to learn but thought I'd maybe get a quick answer to this first.
