I’m a brand new ABG pool owner. This is my first water test. The PH turned bright yellow. I have a Taylor 2006 test kit. I’m assuming this means that the water is very acidic. Do I need to do the acid demand test that is on the card? I’m not sure where to go from here.
What other tests do I need to perform at this juncture? I’m getting electric to the pool today. The pool has filled so I will be turning the pump on and vacuuming today. What else do I need to do?
Thanks!!

Is there any way you can post a complete set of test results? How have you been adding chlorine to the water??
I haven’t added anything. I screwed up I should’ve been adding chlorine before it was full. This is literally the only test I have done. I wasn’t sure where to go from here.

Can you explain how you preformed the test?? I wonder if maybe you mixed some of the reagents up?
I pulled water from my pool elbow deep.
I filled the large tube to 44mL and added 5 drops of R-0004 to the tube and then inverted.
I did it twice thinking I had messed up but bright yellow was the result both times. I just tested my TA and it was 70.
