    new wet edge finish start up advise

    Just had my pool refinished with wet edge satin finish last week, its been 10 days and here are my numbers with tft 100.

    FC 6
    CC 0
    PH 7.6
    Ta 80
    CH 230
    CYA 30
    Temp florida 82 degrees

    It is a salt pool but I am not going to add for 30 days and I did use a few pucks to add some cya and then a little stabilizer powder. Advise on my numbers as I am wanting to add borates again but I will wait till its stable, the above numbers are 10 minutes ago so I am going to add 2 cups MA now. As the advise here the PH is rising daily so MA Daily.

    I just set up pump timer as it has been running 24-7 for the last 7 days, and brushing daily.

    Any advise on the numbers above please.

    Pool School - Start-up New Plaster

    Not sure if you know about this link.

    You forgot to list the PH.

    I think you should wait quite a while before adding borates. At least until your levels get stable. That could be quite a while for new plaster.

    Numbers look good. The most important thing is to keep your PH 7.8 or lower.

    Updated at about 30 days, ready to salt this thing!

    New numbers.

    PH 7.5, dropping to 7.2 tonight. adding 2 cups MA
    fc 4.5 (used liquid and Tabs for a little cya)
    cc 0
    Ta 70
    CH 300
    CYA 60
    Borates 0
    Salt 0
    Temp 72 (yup Florida!)

    Its a new Wet Edge satin finish and its looking pretty good. I need to keep brushing to show some more sparkle but its getting there.

    What do you think regarding the numbers? I am thinking on raising the CYA to 70 as outlined in pool school for SWG.

    Thanks,
