    Thanks for the quick reply. Do you mean after adding the muriatic acid I should wait to see what TA is?

    New vinyl liner... fresh water.... pH issue....

    We got a new liner installed this week and have finished filling the pool with water from our hose (so "tap water"). I checked chemicals and pH is way above 8.2 , Alk is 50 and chlorine( with just the little tester that you do with the pH) is about 4. I know I should fix my pH and alk but...

    Ugh! Help!

    Thank you. We actually determined that we must have another leak somewhere as we are losing water too fast. I guess we are going to have to wait for the new liner. Thank you though.

    Ugh! Help!

    So, we had a tear in the liner/leak at return jet. We hoped we could make it through this season but found another leak around the light. We have a new liner and skimmer/ports ready to install and are having new sheet metal put over the rusted old areas... but the guy we've hired to do it had...

    Help please!

    We have to have are liner replaced. We have someone coming to do it, but a friend of ours mentioned that we should also replace the cove molding when we replaced the liner. Is this always necessary? Also we have foam underneath the liner on the walls. Will this need to be replaced or removed a...

    Guidance please...

    Ok... will work on those... thanks! LOL That's where I'm really unsure... what is best... more bleach? How much? What does my total chlorine level tell me? What should I do until the dpd arrives?

    Guidance please...

    - No guessing now. You did a few "combat bombs" of stuff, but now you need to use your TF-100 (or Taylor K-2006C) and the accompanying FAS-DPD to make sure of your exact FC level. I do not have any more DPD powder... I've ordered it but don't expect it until at least Friday so all I...

    Guidance please...

    My husband (who doesn't usually do the pool stuff) decided to start our "SLAM" by adding 2 bags of 4-in-1 pool shock Saturday early afternoon. When it didn't look better (we were starting with a 'pond') by 7pm he added 6 gallons of bleach. By the time I got home around 9pm it was visibly...

    Question about my testing kit...

    I was basing it on a CYA of 0 since I can't test and it's been over the winter (I have no idea what the last one was but sometime last summer). And yes, ordering new but still doesn't explain why the levels won't go up! ARGGH!!! And thanks.. will try grinding it back up... at least then I...

    Question about my testing kit...

    Yes, brand new... but hmmm... glad you brought the percentage up... my husband actually brought some home today so probably not what I usually buy. Will go look... still seems WAY off though.
