This is the first year opening after discovering this site and TFP last year. Pulled off the cover yesterday and the water is green but I can see through to the bottom this year. we turned the pump on and circulated for an hour and these are my test results.
pH 8.0 (I hate this hard for me to see the different colors but looks more pink)
CYA 40 (another test I have trouble seeing)
salt 1500 (according to generator panel)
I am also using the taylor testing kit recommended here.
according to pool school calculations if I'm doing them correctly I need to add bleach for chlorine, muriatic acid for pH, Baking Soda for TA, Calcium Chloride for CH. Which should I add first? and of course salt.
Thank you for this site and the calculators.
