I have the TF test kit ordered. Scheduled for delivery tomorrow. PB left 2 different inds of test strips here for me. I get different readings with both. So today I took my water to the pool store. (The pool is about 3 weeks old)
They told me to add more CYA since I am using SWC. I am hesitant to do that after all the reading here about having to up my chlorine with higher CYA levels. I have the Goldline Aqua Rite with the controls. There is an "ideal" range on the back of the manual that says stabilizer of 60-80 ppm. Do I really need to take it that high? Why or why not? Pool store told me to add 6 more pounds of stabilizer but I am holding off until I get some answers here.
Also, I just did add about 2 pounds of pH down as it is creeping up. (after getting back from the pool store) Will test that again later tonight.
They did say my CH was high. But that with backwashing it should come down eventually. Do I need to worry about that? Not sure how it got that high unless PB put too much in when they started the pool.
What do I need to do now? Thanks so much for any help!!
