Thanks to everyone for helping me get all the green out! The water is sparkling clear now
Up until now, all I've really been concerned with is the FC, CC and CYA. Now that the green's gone I'm gonna try and get everything else right.
My FC hasn't been under 12 in probably three weeks. I checked it today at 4:00 and it was 11.5. I had to get an eyeball from the pool store so I took a sample to let them check. Here is what their results were:
FC - 9.2
CC - 0.0
pH - 7.4
CH - 90
TA - 10
CYA - 25
1.) Ok, so I need to be concerned with the TA and CYA and maybe the pH just a bit, correct ? Assuming these are right, I need to increase the TA ~60 with baking soda and doing so will increase the pH too right?
2.) My pool is in direct sunlight 6+ hours a day so the CYA needs to be 60-80, correct? I have some leftover pucks and was thinking of using the rest of them, that ok?
3.) The last time I checked the CYA it was ~45 and there hasn't been a substantial amount of water replacement. Either I'm way off or they are....so, do I need to disregard their numbers and redo them myself and go by them?
I'm pretty confident testing now, especially the FC and CYA, I am just wondering why the differences and am unsure which to use.
Tell me your thoughts.....
