    Where do I start with chemical correction?

    FC: 0 PH: 7.2 TA: 90 CYA: 40 (how can it still be 40 from initial set up when we’ve added water a bunch of times?) Where do I start with correcting this? We have our house on the market and the balance got away from me. How long does the taking it down process take? I know it probably starts...
