My name is Chris and recently had a new pool built and wanted to say thank you for all of the support that this site has given me (I've been a silent lurker for a few months) during our start up (12/15) and running through this winter.
So far I am keeping my pool in line with the TFP recommendations and have not had any issues so far. I test FC and PH daily with my TF-100 and CYA, TA, and CH a few times a week. I use only 8.25% bleach and have gotten away from the pucks the PB started it up with.
Here is what I try and maintain.
FC - 6
CC - 0.5
PH - 7.6
TA - 90
CYA - 50
I'll try and get some pictures up soon but really wanted to say hello to everyone and introduce myself. I'm on here daily reading and learning and hope to be able to contribute as I gain experience. This is our first pool ever so I didn't have any bad habits to start with and with the help of TFP I shouldn't gain any bad habits in the future.
