First week of filled new pool here in SW Ohio. I can start doing my own chemistry next week, but builder has checked and adjusted to what they say is good. I am using SWG and plan to use TFP methods otherwise.
First maybe dumb question. We filled 2/3 up skimmer level, maybe 3/4, and now it's raining. Another inch and it will be level with top, and some rain is forecasted for 3 days, so likely to happen. Do I really need to do anything about it? If so exactly how do I handle it?
PB checked chemistry yesterday as below:
salt 3000- recommends 3400 per SWG guideline and said would come up when heats up-currently 64 degrees- I don't see how it would read higher when warmer other than if test should be done at room temp. He tested at 65-66 degrees.
FC- 5- recommend 3-5. I was going to shoot for 3-4 by adjusting SWG % output.
CYA 60- he recommended 60 but I was going to shoot for 70.
TA - recommended 100-200 but didn't measure. I will when I get a kit. I thought 60-80 was correct per pool school.
CH - didn't measure. I don't know what range to use for hybrid pool with epoxy over concrete bottom and fiberglass sides, I was going to use fiberglass range of 220-320. Agree? Or does epoxy coating change that?
pH 7.6 now. Pool school says 7.5-7.8. Pool company says 7.6-8 is fine and SWG will cause to push upward slowly but in his experience settles in his range and not to worry if stays below 8.
Should I use any values other than those in pool math/school for my particular pool? Thanks in advance.
