ARGH!!!! I am new to this pool stuff, I am in AZ and its HOT and we want to swim, BUT...... my Ph is 8.4 my hardness is 1000 (yes thats a thousand!) my alkalinity is 240. CA is 100. The water is cloudy and I added the recomended pH down and it still isn't helping. I used a dry purchased stuff. Should I use myuratic (SP?) instead? My pool is an above ground 15' round 3'deep. Vinyl sides.I have big sand filter. The pool has been up since the first of May. Clorine levels are 2/4. Can someone tell me what to put in???? PLEASE, my kids are ready to dump the water and play in the mud!!!!
