Got some test numbers yesterday and going supply shopping today. My boyfriend and I just bought a new house May 1 that came with a pool. Neither of us has ever had any pool experience with a pool, so we hired a friend's pool service to help out until we got all moved and mostly settled. Well, the time has come and I am now in charge of pool maintenance. So here are the numbers.
FC 33 ppm
CC 2 ppm
The pool guy already told me that pretty much the only way to lower the CYA is to drain and refill, so we are planning to do that at the end of the summer. I have already added some Borax, although not enough because the boyfriend only brought me one small box. The pool guy was using pucks and they are all gone at this time. So I'm assuming my first step will be to get the pH up.
Thanks in advance e for any input.
