new owner, pool has been up & running for about three weeks now
water is clear & pretty, but of course that means less than I had thought is would.....
I've been reading here for days, and following is what I have found, and my plans to correct these findings.
Please clue me in on the mistakes!
testing with Aquachek salt strips, Taylor K-1004 and CYA kit
FC- 0 (clear)
TC- 0 (clear)
TA- 130 (13 drops x 10=130)
CH- xxx - unknown, I do not have this test, reading that not such a big deal for vinyl?
CYA- essentially 0, test sample remained clear, tested twice to be sure
North Florida, 80% direct sunlight, late afternoon/evening shade, Florida rains (drought more than anything this year...)
Soooooooooooo, having plugged in my numbers on the pool calculator, and not wanting to actually buy chlorine, my intent is to do the following:
- add 43 oz of bleach (6%)
- - - target FC of 3
- add CYA stabilizer, preferably liquid, but solid will do
- - - target CYA of 70
- then retest next day (for liquid stabilizer) or few days (for solid stabilizer) and adjust as needed
- salt level I expect will come down on it's own as time passes
What do you think, am I even close?
