I've been lurking for a few weeks and I have a new SWG pool that I am just getting used to. We've had it operational for only one week. I have read a lot on this site and have gone to "Pool School". My pool is about 25,000 gallons and was filled with city water, as well as 15 bags of salt and one bag of "shock" from the local pool store. I haven't added any other chemicals to it.
My Taylor K-2006 arrived today, and I got the following measurements:
I have been running my pump at 35% power all day every day, as well as a couple of hours per day at 80%. My chlorinator is on and says it is at 75%.
With such a low FC, am I sure my chlorinator is working? Or, is it possible that the 1 ppm of FC is from the shock I added a few days ago and my chlorinator is not functioning properly?
I have just started adding some CYA pucks tonight. Do you think my inability to get the FC level higher is due to not running the pump enough, a malfunctioning chlorinator, or inadequate CYA levels?
Many thanks for any advice. I'll post again when my CYA level gets higher.
