You asked: Can I add shock and baking soda to my pool at the same time?

i can add this to my pool while doing the SLAM. 80 TA is just fine. Don’t add baking soda. But you can go ahead and add enough CYA to get to 30 and just assume it’s there and use 12 FC as your new SLAM level.

Can I add baking soda to pool after shock?

After retesting, you can always add more if the level is still low. Otherwise, you could swing too far in the delicate pH balance and need to add an acid. Add baking soda to the pool. Sodium bicarbonate is packaged in powder form and can be sprinkled directly into your pool water.

Can I add shock and sodium bicarbonate at the same time?

Test strips are next to useless. The CYA (stabilizer/conditioner) reading is probably wrong. If the pH were low, you do not add sodium bicarbonate to raise it — that’s for raising the TA.

Can you add multiple pool chemicals at the same time?

Despite being chlorinating agents, they are incompatible. Do not add at the same time or mix muriatic acid and chlorine. Such interaction produces a toxic gas that is dangerous to health even in small amounts. A good rule of thumb is to never mix pool chemicals with each other.

Can I add muriatic acid and baking soda at the same time?

Keep a supply of baking soda or garden lime nearby in case you need to quickly neutralize muriatic acid. While sprinkling these substances full-strength will work, the best plan is to mix ½ cup of baking soda and a quart of water in a sealed spray bottle and keep it nearby.

How much shock do I add to my pool?

Shocking your pool is the final step for getting rid of all the bacteria, algae spores, and other organic contaminants that may have entered your pool during the winter off-season. To shock your pool, use 2 pounds of shock for every 10,000 gallons of water, which should raise your chlorine levels to 10.0 ppm.

Can you mix different types of pool shock?

Don’t mix them in the same container. In the pool it’s okay because of the water volume (the products are diluted more). But NEVER mix them both in the same bucket or chlorinator.
