I have a new 27' round AGP. I have the TF100 test kit. I am not sure of the proper order for testing and making adjustments. Do I need to test and adjust TA prior to PH, or vice versa, etc. Can I start adding CYA before I test/adjust these other components (um, I already added some chlorine and CYA to hold the chlorine). I know I will need more CYA to get to the 30-40 range. I added about half what I will need. My initial PH test of the raw water is 7.2. I have not succesfully completed a TA test yet, still working on that. I may have issues with the dropper for the reagents, as discussed elsewhere.
Is there a proper order for making adjustments to the new water (this is well water)?
