HAVE WATER SAMPLE TESTED AT POOL PLACE. THE TAST WILL TELL YOU HOW MUCH TO ADD

Lower TA with muriatic acid.

With your size of pool I wouldn't add more than 1 cup at a time in a 24 hour period.

Turn your pump off. Pour the acid in one or 2 spots at least a foot away from the side walls and let it sit for 20 minutes. Then turn your pump on to circulate the pool well. Retest and reapply if necessary.

Make sure your pH doesn't go below 7.2
