So we opened our pool today - and the water didn't look too bad. The numbers, of course, need some work!
We're planning on switching to SWG in the next few weeks - I don't know if that affects what I do based on my test results right now or not. This is my first time using the TF-100 test kit and these numbers were after I'd had the pump going for about an hour or so. My water level is a little high - we've had so much rain over the last few weeks - and at this moment, the water level is only below the top of only one of the skimmers (one skimmer is higher than the other). I'll be dropping that down some more tomorrow.
My concern is the CYA - according to the pool calc, I need to replace 60% of my water. Eek! I'm hoping there is a way around that... I know now that this is so high because of the chlorine pucks we used (and have probably been used for years, we just bought the house last year).
Here are my numbers -
FC 9.5 (when we opened the pool we added two gallons of chlorine, this number was a couple of hours later)
I've not added anything so far other than the chlorine mentioned. I put the numbers in The Pool Calc so have some idea of what's coming but thought I'd see whether moving to salt will change anything I do.
