I am heading into my third year with a pool. Half way through the first year this forum saved me. Last year was BBB with no problems.
I am filling the pool now, but the water I am using is very different than last year. The tap water is PH 8.6 or higher according to the various test kits we have. The TA is 50. I am assuming that the CYA of my tap water is 0. I have already added bleach to avoid biological problems.
I am used to starting with acidic water. What should I do to this water?
