Hello from Missouri City, Texas! I have used a pool service last year and am attempting to do this myself this year. I have just received my TF-100 Test Kit and I have recorded the following test results: FC (0.5), CC (0), TC (0), pH (>8.2), T/A (250), CH (80), CYA (120).
Question... where should I start? Lower TA with muriatic acid first using the Pool Calculator? I have read the BBB article and can purchase everything at Walmart and Home Depot.
Or... do I worry first about Chlorine and pH as these are what are to be tested daily according to the "Basic Pool Care Schedule".
I just recorded the test results above on June 24 at 9pm and would like to move on this as soon as possible.
