    First Swim accomplished thanks to TFP!!

    Hi everyone,

    That was fun!!

    I can't believe that I was able to perform chemistry tests with all your help and have my friends and family swim safely this Memorial weekend.

    A huge thank you to everyone that helped and reassured me this past month.

    The pool looks and feels fabulous.


    .......as per usual, here are this evenings results after a busy weekend swimming.

    Weather-a lot of rain this morning....

    FC-3.0
    CC-0.5
    TC-3.5
    CH-50
    TA-140
    CYA-70
    PH-8.2
    CL/BR-5-10
    Salt-2800ppm

    I do think the rain this morning has skewed these results a little. Having put these into Poolmath it has asked that I add 68lbs bags of salt... to be honest I might wait until tomorrow and perform another test, or should I do as the calculator suggests.

    Its my first real test and swim, albeit after a significant day of rain.

    Thanks so much again everyone. I hope you all had a fun weekend.

    Congrats From those tests I would bring your FC up to and target 5 and add some MA to drop your PH, with your TA at 140 your PH will rise a little fast but as you take PH down you TA will also lower

    Yep, keep some bleach around to help out the SWG when needed. It is a lot easier to add some bleach from time to time than to adjust run time and percentage up and down all the time.

    Congrats on a great
