Greetings and Salutations - Happy New Year!
I am a "new" pool guy - have never managed water chemistry before. Here are my pool specs:
Pool has buit in floor cleaner system and two skimmers basket and a covered skimmer with fine bag.
- 2003 - 11070 gallons, Gunnite/Pebble Tech Freeform pool with 3 pumps:
water fall pump, skimmer pump (aerator - bubbler?), and a main drain pump
In Ground Pool with Cartridge Filter system (new filters added).
The Pool was GREEN with swimming creatures before we closed on the house. Pool has been drained and acid washed. ( I spent 12 hours scrubbing calcium scale with MA + 4 pumice stones and a running hose, respirator and eye protection.
7DEC FC - 3.5 TAC - 0 PH - 7.6 CYA - 0 TA ? CH ? TDS - 600 PHOS - 100 (Leslie Pool Store Test)
28 DEC FC - 0 CC - 0 PH - 8.0 CYA - 0 TA - 130 CH - 330 TDS ? Phos ? (Taylor 2006 Test Kit)
Added 20 oz Dry Acid and 40 oz 6% Bleach
31DEC FC 1.6 CC - 0 PH 7.8 CYA - 0 TA - 120 CH - 350 TEMP = 39 deg F (Brrrrrr!)
1- What should be my goals this winter to set the pool up for success with swimming in April?
I am looking at things like moving the CYA to 40, Borates (unk) to 50, FC to 2.5, PH to 7.6??
