I am posting pool stats so I can do this correctly. I have read all the topics here on the forum(you'all are a gold mine of information) and have the general idea, but would appreciate some guidance as the chemistry fails to stay in my head. I guess you could say I know enough to know I don't know enough. I have ordered the Ascorbic Acid and will purchase polyquat 60, Jack's Purple Stuff (plaster), and bleach. I know to lower the chlorine to 0 and the ph to 7.0. We have had over 10 in" rain in the last 2 weeks so I need to deal with the CYA and TA.
I don't know the correct order in which to correct the water. Do I raise the CYA and then the TA, or just the opposite? And then lower FC and ph? The water is clear and sparkling, just those dang stains.
Water Temp 70 degrees F
