Didn't know whether to post this in the AGP or the Chemistry part so...
But - does the TFP method REALLY make things THIS easy?
A month into it now and chemical wise once I got the stabilizer in (CYA is steady at about 45 now and I haven't added any more so far) - the ONLY thing I have had to add to date is chlorine in varying amounts - NO Borax, NO Baking Soda - and my tests are GREAT every day - PH is exactly 7.5, and all the weekly tests are right in line - and THIS is how good my water looks this afternoon.
Now, I did have the dust/sand issue I posted about - but once I got the new pump and cleaner - 99% gone!
I am not spending more than 3 minutes a day testing the chlorine/PH and adding bleach.
COST - less than .30 a day in bleach.
