The new tub arrived and its up and running. I just checked my first set of numbers and here they are:
pH = 7.8
FC = 1.5
CC = 0.5
TC = 2.0
TA = 260
CH = 320
CYA = 25
Now, before any of you tell me that I am crazy and that I need to go check those numbers again, I should explain that we used 1/2 fresh tap water and 1/2 water from my pool to fill the tub, so that is why there is already CYA and chlorine showing up.
I did a quick check of my pool water and its readings tonight are:
FC = 6.0
CC = 0
So, my first goal is to adjust the TA, correct? Its a 500 gal tub so I am going to add a total of 5 oz of MA (diluted and as 2.5 oz additions) and then turn all the jets on. Then I recheck in 30 min, right?
Any thoughts too on why my pool tests negative for CC but I'm finding them right away in the tub? Should I shock just to be safe?
