I just got done converting my pool water from Soft Swim to chlorine. Yeah! Now, I have no idea what to do. My numbers were at 12 noon: FC 7, CC 2.5, PH 7.2, CYA 0. I know I need to get CYA number up and CC down. I went to store thinking I needed Muriaic acid, but now realize that is for lowering PH. So I'll store that in garage (safe place?). What is the common name for CYA? What do I ask for at the store? How do I lower my CC? I did buy chlorine tablets from Walmart that has cal-hypo to use on weekends that I am away, which will be this coming weekend. Can I use them this weekend or will it depend on my numbers? Also, if I can use them, put them in a floater or in skimmer? I also have borax and baking soda on hand.
(ok, I need alot of help)
