Pool is about 8 weeks old, 15,000gal, Peble sheen, run pump about 14hours a day - water clear (looks good) temp at 50, Cleaned filters to get rid of startup gunk about two weeks ago.
Tested my pool using the strip - got somthing like this.
TH - 100
Then used the test kit -
on the Chlorine test add 5 drops #1 - get blood orange color Way high on the measuring kit chart Chart
Do ph test - right at 6.8 - 7.4
Do total Alkalinity test - add one drop #4 and 2 drops #5 - turns clear blue add solution #3 - get to 30 drops - no change at all - so I guess alkalinity is off the chart high
So I plan to add Muriatic acid and hope the sun comes out and reduces the chlorine.
Am I even close on this?
