    Is my pool Chemistry OK?

    I am an Atlanta Georgia resident, my water chemistry is listed below. Do I need to increase my TA? I plan to keep my pool running through the winter. Appreciate any other suggestions/comments.

    CL: 2.8 - all free chlorine
    PH: 7.4 - 8.0 range - I add Muriatic acid 2x per week to balance, just added yesterday, this is the normal range.
    TA: 60 - has dropped from about 110 this past April.
    CYA: 65
    CH: 275
    Salt: 3,100 - my SWG has recently failed, I am maintaining CL levels using Bleach through the winter and will replace SWG in the spring.
    TDS: 3,300
    phosphates < 100

    I run my filter about 5 hours per day.
    Thank You

    Here is a link to the recommended levels:

    I see "Leslie DPE testing" listed in your siggy. Do you have the test kit or are you taking it to them to test?

    Thanks, I test with Taylor kit not Leslie, I changed my Signature. I use the table from pool school so I guess I know the answer, I need to bump my TA. I just thought going into winter it might not be as critical or drop much between now and spring.

    Your FC seems a little low. I keep mine around 4 with a SWG. Kimkats has you covered with the recommended levels.

    Is it the FAS-DPD or just the dpd test for FC? Do you use 0870 powder and 0871 drops?

    Okay. Can you put FAS-DPD in your signature instead of just DPD? Thanks!
