Ok the kit came in today. Very well put together and the instructions are almost spot on. Here are the numbers that I pulled.
Today right before the SWG ran and then After SWG cycle
FC 1.5 ------ 3 or 5.5
CC 1----- 7 or 9
Seems like the longer is stirred it would eventually turn a little pink again. I quit adding drops and figured I'd ask if I was doing it right. So is it as soon as it goes clear or stays clear? It would stay clear for a good 10-20 seconds and then start to turn pinkish again.
TC 3 ----- 12.5 or 14.5 depends on which of the above values you use
CH 50 ----- 50
TA 40 ----- 40 Turned dark pink never red
CYA 30 ----- 20 Not quite sure why it was lower the second time. Does the dot have to disappear or just be hard to see?
PH 7.2 ----- 7.2
Did do another salt test strip this afternoon and it was still the same as the first one a week ago and it's 2820ppm
So here's the run down of what's in the pool. Pool was started 19 days ago and the SWG was DOA (didn't know that until I went to turn it on for the first time after it was piped in and salt had be dissolved). As the instructions for the SWG called for 0.8lbs of CYA, I put it in a sock and had it in the skimmer to dissolve. Seeing how the original SWG was DOA I was using 10% bleach (12oz a day) until the replacement SWG came in. The new SWG has been running the last 7 days.
SWG is set for 3hrs a day and the pump I have set for 6hrs.
Water barely got cloudy on day 3 about the time I found the SWG was DOA and that's when I started using the bleach. Ever since then water has been clear. I've attached a pic for reference if that helps.
So now the million dollar question --- Where do I go from here?
Thank you in advance
