Well, I finally got the pool filled a couple of weeks ago. About a week or so ago the PB threw a puck into each skimmer (2). I did not see the container so I have no idea what it was. So I've kind of played around with the testing thinking he *should* be the one balancing the water the first round. (I had to be the one to vacuum it to have a clean pool, so him balancing the water...NOT...shouldn't really be surprising!)
Here are the numbers I have gotten and I am shocked at how out of whack they are already!
FC - 29!!!!!!!!!
CC - 0
TC - 29
PH - 6.8
TA - this one I'm not sure about - since the chlorine is so high it's either WAY over 300 since it never turned after even 30 drops OR 40 (when it turned blue) OR 70 (when it turned yellow)
CYA - 90 (could possibly even call it 100!)
Now, I'm hoping that maybe this CYA will come down some since I just took the pucks out of the skimmers over the weekend since I saw that the CYA was so high. Otherwise, I'm seeing that draining some is the only way to lower it?? Please say no...I just just got through filling it!
I plugged the #"s into Jason's calculator and it says to add 84oz of borax and 60 oz of baking soda. Should I go ahead and do this??? Needless to say...the gates are now locked so he can't get to the water!!
As usual thanks bunches for your help!
