I've been following the program for 6 weeks or so. Pool is awesome, water looks outstanding, and no more trips to Leslies!!
I've concentrated most of my effort on maintaining proper TC. I just did a full test and here are my current results:
FC - 3.0
CC - 0
TC - 3.0
PH - 7.8
CYA - 30 (I guess....I hate this test...a couple of days ago I got 40)
TA - 80
CH - 550
When I was just getting started, it was recommended to me to not worry about the CH or TA yet and to concentrate on a SLAM and getting used to maintaining TC....which I've done.
But now, my TA is a little off from what the test kit says it should be (but Pool Math suggests it's okay), and my CH is really high. Should I now take steps, using Pool Math, to correct those? Do you guys worry about those numbers? I really don't want to drain and replace almost half of my water to lower the CH unless absolutely necessary (water is expensive here, plus that would be a hassle), but I'll do it if needed. Looking for some insight from the pros here...
