just switching over from PS to TFP so I'm needing lots of advice!
I am waiting for my TF-100 test kit to arrive in the mail.
#1 I think I will be needing to work on my chlorine, CA, and TA. What is the corrrect order to work on these, or do I use Pool calculator and just go after all 3 at once. did just add tons of pool shock (12% liquid) but I know I need to do "shock process" with good testing
#2 What is the appropriate pH range to aim for with a SWG plaster-lined pool? Do I want to be at the low end (7.2-7.4) or the higher end (7.4-7.6). I know that all the chem levels/csi will relate to this answer, but I was wondering if there was a specific level to shoot for.
Since the plaster is curing now I fight the pH rising quickly, getting to 7.8 within 3 days of lowering it to 7.4-7.2. According to PS tests (I know, can be unreliable!) my TA is high, in the 140's usually. I read "how to reduce TA" so I know I need to reduce it to 80 or so for a SWG as sson as I get my kit, to help control pH drift.
any suggestions would be appreciated.
