Ok, I have a 22,500 vinyl pool. The pool is chlorinated with a SWG. Water temperature is 50F. The PB recently added all the salt to the water. My SWG manual states salt should be about 4000ppm. It's currently 3850.
My confusion stems from reading my chlorinator manual (Jandy Ei chlorinator), and comparing it's suggested chemistry numbers to what's suggested by the pool calculator when selecting the suggested ranges for Traditional Pool or Troublefreepool.com suggested ranges. My confusion is that all three sources seem to differ somewhat.
The suggested ranges according to my chlorinator manual are as follows:
I ordered the TF-100 kit with the speedstir and have done tests the past two nights to get the hang of it. The testing itself is very straight forward. Here are the numbers for my pool:
Are these numbers normal for a newly-filled vinyl pool? When I plug these numbers into the pool calculator it looks like I have to make many adjustments (TA, CH, CYA). Am I obsessing over this stuff too much? Do I need to worry about correcting any of these things with the water being so cold and nobody swimming? Do I need to care about CH in a vinyl pool?
