I am trying to dial in a correct swg resulting in a good maintenance for this summer. This is the second year I've owned it and I am struggling to stop green algae.
Located in Tampa Bay, FL., near a very large oak tree (I remove debris daily) and full sunlight. 13,000 gallon marcite pool.
Testing equipment I have a TF100, Aqua CheK PH, FAC, TA, Stabilizer and a Taylor Salt test kit. Please help dial in maintenance based on today's test below in bold. And thank you in advance for any suggestions!
Per sgschlorinators.com my SWG Breeze 320 requirements are:
Salt (4000-4500) PPM
PH (7.2-7.6) PPM
Total Alkalinity (TA) (80-100) PPM
Cyanuric Acid (CYA) (20-50) PPM
Phosphates Metals (None)
Calcium Hardness (200-400) PPM
Free Chlorine (1.0-3.0) PPM
Today's test prior to 5 gallons of chlorine to try to control start of yet another green algea bloom and prior two days of running pump and SWG 100% total 48 hrs.:
Salt (4000-4500) PPM ~~~ 4400 OK
PH (7.2-7.6) PPM ~~~ 7.8...always seems a little high no matter how much Muriatic Acid I add?
Total Alkalinity (TA) (80-100) PPM ~~~ 95 ppm OK
Cyanuric Acid (CYA) (20-50) PPM ~~~ (reading 100 ppm from pool store, but 40-50 ppm on my TF100???)
Phosphates Metals (None) varies between pool store tests 100-300 ppm - how do I test this? and treat?
Calcium Hardness (200-400) PPM ~~~ 300 ppm
Free Chlorine (1.0-3.0) PPM Pool store = 0, k1000 = ~~~ .5 ppm - How do I raise this number without carting 20 lbs. jugs of chlorine?
