Hey all. First let me just say that I appreciate people who understand pool chemistry. I thought I was a smart guy, but apparently not.
I have a 20’ round take up/put down yearly pool. I just filled it. I’m trying to follow the rules by addressing alkalinity first, then pH, chlorine etc. I’m using Aquachek strips. My water was very high for pH and alkalinity. So far I’ve added 2.5 gallons of Muriatic acid. My pH has lowered but my TA is still showing very high.
All the research I’ve done tells me to use small amounts of acid for a 10k gallon pool. I’m worried about adding more as I’ve already put so much in. Should I just keep adding more?
