Liquid Chlorine
We have a above ground Bestway pool. It’s roughly 6000 gallons. I tested with a tf100 kit this afternoon and got this values:
FC 2.5
Ph 7.5
TA 130
CH 300
CYA 50
Is the total alkalinity ok at 130? If not, how do I best fix it? I did add liquid chlorine to increase the fc to 6 after testing.

Also next week, we are going to be gone for 5 days. I was planning to have my neighbor on the pool pump every other day and put a chlorine tablet in the floater. Will this be enough?

Welcome to TFP! :wave: Your TA is a little elevated, but not horrible and not anything to take quick action on yet. The use of muriatic acid over time to lower the pH will also lower the TA. Having your neighbor add a little chlorine each day is perfect.
