Like to request some help on setting priorities for treating my pool. Have several items to work on.
Chem. pH-8.2+, TA-200, FC-2(at the moment), CC-<0.5, CH-480(Was 600, but lowered by partial drain), CYA-44(was about 100, but lowered with partial drain). Temp-80-83 deg F. Water is clear and there is no scale problems. Do have some staining, but that's for another day.
1. Need to shock-losing 50% + overnight of CL.
2. Lower TA to 60-70 along with the pH. Probably will be long process due to lack of aeration. Do have 5 returns plus pool sweep connection. Plan to shop for cheap fountain device today.
3. Lower CH. Was much lower, around 300, but I used cal/hypo to shock and CH jumped to 600. After partial drain, dropped it to 480. Do I need to lower it further?
Which of the above should I work on first is my question.
Thanks in advance,
