Well, my first set of numbers is in
Since my TC is higher than my FC and my water is cloudy I am shocking at 16ppm (based on my CYA reading of 40) until my water holds overnight with less than 1ppm FC loss. I have already lost some chlorine since sundown and adjusted to keep it at 16ppm overnight. However, I have three questions.
1) I am assuming that I don't need to add acid and that an alkalinity of 140 and PH is okay based on what I have read in this forum, although I did add a couple of leftover trichlor pucks to my feeder to deal with this.
2) My CH doesn't matter because I have a vinyl liner correct? Do I even need to test for this from now on?
3) I would also like advice on whether I should raise my CYA to 50-70 to battle the Alabama sun after I finish this shocking process by using a little Dichlor?
