I just added 4lbs of pH up (Sodium Carbonate 100%) to my pool by mistake (thought I grabbed a bottle of stabilizer instead). My pH was 7.8 yesterday (according to Leslie's). My test the day before showed 8.1(ish). I just did it, so I haven't done a another test yet. I'm fairly new to TFP and this concept. I attempted it last year, but didn't fully read everything and went back to the pool store. So, I've never posted here before and I hope I'm giving you enough info. Bare with me as I get up to speed.
Here were my readings yesterday from Leslie's
CYA 0 (this is what I was trying to address when I added the pH by mistake, I meant to add stabilizer (cyanuric acid 100%)
My readings from 2 days ago with my test kits (I'm still learning how to read everything on my kit)
FC .6 +/-
Acid Demand 2
I'm assuming I will need to add some muriatic acid to bring my pH down (I had already add about 1 pints the night before last). I added a gallon of liquid chlorine yesterday morning before going to the pool store.
If I need to add muriatic acid, how long do I need to wait after I added the pH up?
