    Been Trouble Free

    Thanks to this site my pool maintenance has been so easy. Pool has been in my hands a couple of months now and I have had nothing but crystal clear water that is a joy to look at and swim in.

    I've been working a bit on lowering TA and now have it at 60 which really seems to have helped with PH rise. I was having to add about 24oz of acid every other day which with SWG and being a new pool wasn't horrible but now that addition is down to about every 4 days or so. Numbers from last night.

    FC 6.0
    CC 0.0
    PH 7.5
    TA 60
    CH 300
    CYA 40
    Salt 3000
    Temp 93
    CSI -.32

    I added some CYA last night to bring back up to 70. I last adjusted CYA a month ago to 70 but we have had a lot of rain which has required draining a lot of water out of the pool to keep from overflowing. Probably 12-18" or so. I run my pump on low 24/7 with SWG currently at 45%.
