Hi all... I'm in the process of trying to get my pool balanced... Target is TFP standards for salt water pool. Current test results:
- FC 6 ppm
- PH 7.5 - goal 7.6
- TA 100 - goal is 60-70; So I read in these pages that to lower TA bring down PH to 7.0-7.2, then aerate until PH is 7.6; repeat as necessary to reach TA goal. I'm guessing this is iterative... Any idea how many times this will be necessary?
- CH 375
- CYA 60 - working to get this up to70. Once the soc is empty will the reading stabilize or will it continue to rise?
- Salt 3150 ppm - seems it was 3200 the other day, recommended is 3400. Added 80lbs yesterday... does the SWCG burn through the salt that fast?
Any particular order I should approach this?
I've been told having the CYA at these levels will cause the ORP reading on the intellichem to be off... I was thinking I might let the system settle, get the FC right, see where the ORP is and set that as the goal in the system... does that make sense?
Finally, the acid injection system has kept the PH spot on. Make sense to add borates to further tighten the PH range? I imagine as we head into summer the pool will get into the high 80s and will be more of a challenge to keep in balance... Thanks for your thoughts!
