So we just opened our pool for the season about 2 weeks ago, and this past week, the pool company that we have contracted to open and close our pools mistakenly threw in all kinds of buffer (I forget how much) into our pool -- they got our pool mixed up with another customer. I used the handy dandy TF-100 test kit, and here are the results:
TA 200 (from 140 the week before)
What's your take about what to do, outside of complaining to my pool company? (don't give them too hard of a time though... they are good people over there). I figure I need to lower the TA with muriatic acid... so I just dropped 4L (1 gallon) of 31.45% muriatic acid into the pool and wait for it to do it's magic. I read that I need to aerate the pool to bring the pH up. some questions though... how long would it take using this process to lower the TA to something more reasonable (like 100) for my pool? Is there a faster way to do it?
Any answers would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your answers!
