I tested my pool for the first time this morning. Here are the facts I think you might need.
Size: 18,000-18,500 gallons is my best guess
Gunite, in ground with hot tub (my pool build http://www.troublefreepool.com/threa...inions-welcome)
League City, TX
OAT: 80 deg PT: 78 deg
variable speed pump set to 1500rpm for 23 hours a day
In line chlorinator with 3 inch chlorine pucks
TF-100 test kit
1 ppm FC using the TF-100, but not sure I did it right because but using the Taylor it's .2 CL
0 CC (assuming I did it correctly)
20 CYA (which is puzzling because I've never added any at all, so shouldn't it be 0?)
My PB put the initial chlorine tabs in and some muriatic acid. He wanted me just to test the chlorine and the pH daily and to add acid if the pH got high due to the plaster curing. I've done that all and now I'm on my own. I really don't think the in-line chlorinator is getting enough chlorine in the pool with the variable pump running at such a low RPM. Of course I didn't plan on continuing using the chlorine pucks because I was going to switch to bleach. But I wanted to do what the PB told me to do for the first 2 weeks. I'm sure I'm not giving you all the information you will need to help me, so please let me know what else I need to do. THANK YOU!
