I've lived in dallas most of my entire life with no pool of my own. Now I've got a Intex Round Ulta frame 14x42. Set up went well. I have been reading TFPC and I love it. Pool was set up and running 6/27/16. Initially used just bleach to raise my FC to 3 until my taylor k2006 came in. What a difference it makes. And it all makes since to me. After getting my test kit I add cya in panty hose sock through the skimmer. Took it out at about 40. Added MA to lower PH a bit. I did preform my first Slam last week due to the water looking cloudy also I had not Slammed it at all. After the slam and letting my FC float down. My numbers are
FC 9 (slam to 16)
CYA 35-40 (I'll test again tomorrow to get accurate reading)
I haven't noticed any algae but I'm not sure what it looks like either.?? During the Slam I did not do an accurate ONCL. Tested fc the morning after and it was 1-2 ppm lower than my target 16. I figured that was ok.
Any thoughts? Am I doing it right??
Will be getting my signature up soon. Doesn't let me on my device.
