K from what I can tell we are swimming in plain well water!
pH less than 6.8
The CYA test didn't work I could always see the dot. Not sure what I did wrong there, I did it 3x.
I dumped 5gal 12.5% chlorine in on Wednesday and have 6 trichloroethane tabs dissolving in the skimmer baskets per the pool store info. I used the pool calculator and cane up with adding 399oz bleach, 113oz borax and 657oz baking soda. Could this be right? Are we okay to swim in this water? It's just like swimming in a lake right? Thanks for your help!
