I have just installed Breeze 540 SWG System on my pool pad, but I have not powered it on yet. I am a first summer pool owner, still going through learning curve.
Currently my pool has a little bit of mustard algae on the walls that I am working on addressing it. Yellow Treat is coming. Visually pool water is clear and I use my pool on regular basis.
Leslieís ran water analysis and the results are:
- Free Chlorine 1 ppm (low)
- Total Chlorine 1 ppm (low)
- Calcium 540 (high)
- CYA 99 ppm
- Total Alkalinity TA 140 (high)
- pH 7.7
- Copper and Iron 0
- TDS 3100
- Phosphates 1500 (high)
My salt system wants TA in range on 80-100. I will use Muriatic acid to lower TA from 140 to ~90, my pH should go down which will help me fight my mustard algae problem.
I will raise salt level to ~4000ppm once I figure out how to measure it.
My salt system wants CYA in 30ppm range, but I donít see how I can lower my CYA from 99ppm to 30ppm. I stopped using stabilized chlorine as of yesterday once I found out my CYA levels.
Is it safe for Salt System Equipment to start operating it with Phosphates at 1500ppm and CYA at 99ppm?
I plan addressing Phosphates with PHOSfree in 3 weeks, but I plan bring Salt system online in 3 days.
