Hello to all,
I just started to open my pool for the summer, with a growing and hopefully better understanding of pool chemistry. But I do still need some guidance. On Saturday, I also installed, with the help of an electrician, my new Auto Pilot SWG. I did a water test with my new TF kit, which by the way, I like alot. Now, I've added NO chemicals to my pool as of yet, and trying to understand where to start. The water itself is surprising clear, but I would say significant algae on the bottom. The water is uncirculated, due to pump issues, or maybe something else. I have a thread open in the pool repair section of this forum. Below is my findings.
FC - 0
CC - 0
TC - 0
PH - 7.2
TA - 110
CH - 90
CYA - Guessing 180 or 200. This one has me the most concerned on how to proceed. I believe it to be way high. In the TF kit, looking in the tub until the black dot is no longer visible, it becomes not visible quick. Maybe half way from the bottom to the 90 line. Maybe not even half way, but close. The solution is very cloudy.
So, how do I lower CYA. Chemically, or as I think I've read, removing/replacing pool water?
Your help is greatly appreciated,
