I switched over from using Baquacil to Chlorine last year. My pool has looked great with no problems (after the change over was complete). BUT all last year and now beginning this year with opening to pool my CYA, TA, and Ph reading seems off compared to what I see on TFP. Here are my readings from this morning. I'm wondering if I should be concerned??? I battled it all last year (drained water levels/refilled twice) and could never get the readings where they should be but my pool looked great and still does. My water is very clear, pressure is good.
FC- 8 (I add 1/2 gallon of 8.25 bleach each evening, so this is a little high because I just added last night and took sample early this morning.)
PH- 8(not sure how to put this....I had to add 2 drops of the Acid Demand to get it down to 7.6)
I hope this is enough information for you to help me. I love the ease of using the chlorine method but can't relax and enjoy my pool because of my readings and not knowing what to do to achieve the correct readings according to your site. I did read somewhere here not to chase numbers just for the sake of chasing numbers????
Thanks for any information you can provide.
