I have read for over 45 minutes this morning but can't find my exact answer.
I got the following read from the pool store yesterday (no test kit yet):
Alkalinity (w/stabilizer correction???) 80ppm
Cyanuric Acid 35ppm
I added the amount of chlorine, as indicated on the Pool Calculator. THAT'S the part I DO understand She told me to dump 5-10 pounds of soda to bring up the TA to atleast 100. She then told me to add 2.5lbs of pH down to lower it. I added the soda and will need to retest after it completely mixes.
I went to Lowes and bought pH and Total Alkalinity Decreaser (sodium bisulfate). This isn't what I wanted, is it?
