My neighbor just had her pool installed and she has the Aqua Smarte System. Just got on here today and read about this system. I've already texted her about possibly not using this at all and just going with the bleach. Question is, I know that this system adds CYA to the water but does anyone know how fast it raises it? We were going to add this to her pool tonight but now I don't know how much to add. Hopefully she will not use the Aqua Smarte then problem solved but if not I don't know how much to add. She just put the cartridge in last night around 9:30. I'm also worried about her chlorine level. After reading about the Aqua Smarte I found out that it barely raises the chlorine at all. Is that right? I didn't get to test this last night due to the time. So far I added Muratic acid to lower her Ph which is at 7.2 right now. A little low but we are adding Baking Soda tonight because her TA is at 40 so I'm hoping her Ph will raise just a tad with that. If not I'll just tell her daughter to splash constantly while she swims, lol. Can I add bleach to her pool even though she has the Aqua Smarte?
Oh and she has an oval pool 12X24 oval AGP with a 52" wall. I've been using pool math at 7000 gallons just to be safe until I can properly measure her depth tonight.
Any other advice you'd like to throw out there would be much appreciated as well!
