Okay, so the poll company didn't show up to start up my pool. So I said fine! I'll do it myself!
Here's my initial reading after start-up and 2 gallons of shock (not enough, I know, it's all I had on hand, since the pool company didn't show)
CYA: 0 <- YIKES!
PH: 7.8 <- Not too bad!
Someone remind me how I am supposed to lower my TA and raise my CYA??
