I am in Sydney, Australia and this is my fist post. I have a small, 7500 gallon fully tiled concrete pool. Until now, I have been using a combination of pool shop tests and aquachek strips.
I want to take control of my pool chemistry.
Here are my first test results:
So, clearly I need to do some work. I added 8 oz of muriatic acid which should sort out my PH. I have also tuned my SWG down from 60% to 50%.
My CYA also seems low which surprised me. Should I retest once the PH is stable? The pool shop tests normally read more like 80 and I'm sure I have put enough in to get it to 80?
I presume my TA is okay?
I guess I also need to raise the CH?
Thanks in advance. I am looking forward to getting this right and then I plan to add some borates to the water.
