got Taylor K-2005 today. results:
FC 6.0 (diluted sample 1:1 with distilled H2O)
pool looks really sparkly, clean
1. I'm a little confused on the pool calculator. what is my goal for FC with CYA 45? For right now I have my SWG off over night to let FC fall and to do OCLT to make sure I'm finished with the shock I started last week.
2. When should I raise CYA to 70? I get on PC that I need 6 lbs granular CYA.
3. If I keep adding acid as needed when pH climbs (which it likes to with my SWG and fresh plaster) will I eventually get TA down, or do I need to use the "lowering TA method" from pool school. I don't mind adding a little acid daily to keep pH under control.
4. I would like to run my pump less. I did not realize till I read TFP but I have been running it 24-7 since I opened the pool 2 1/2 months ago! It is a 1 hp pentair 1 speed whisperflo and I have a 30,000 gal pool. I was going to try running it from 8am to 12pm daily. Is this a good place to start?
thank you! I'm really appreciating you TFP folks!
