I've been maintaining my pool since last Oct using the TFP method. This is the first weekend we're going to be swimming with company (no pressure! ) These are my current levels:
FC 8 (Got a little too excited!)
I know I have to raise CH but haven't gotten around to ordering it yet. I was thinking of lowering pH to 7.2. Would that be wise? I could raise CYA but I'm going to out for 2 months in the summer and having to hire a pool co. and they'll be using pucks.
If there's a heavy swimmer load (no babies/toddlers) the main contaminants will be sun block and bug spray.
1. So if swimming starts saturday morning, what time should I test the water and add chemicals?
2. How long after adding chemicals can people go in?
3. Should I test at the end of the day as well?
4. Anything else?
Thanks as always for helping
