Hello, I built a 20x40 (8.5' deep end, 3.4' shallow end) recently and finally got it converted to salt with aqua plus and salt cell. I dumped about 800 pounds in and its been running for about 48 hours now. I just had the water tested by a pool place and this is where I am.
Salt - 3000ppm (according to aqua plus reading)
Alk - 90
PH - 7.8
FC - 2
CYA - 50
Currently the pump is running 24/7 with chlorinator at 50%. Running 24/7 because still having work done around pool, sodding etc.. so trying to keep it clean.
I have been reading through pool school. The pool place said everything is within range for what they like to see.
Now my thoughts are from reading is that the PH is OK, the Alk is 10-20 high, CYA is about 20-30 low, FC is a little low, and I should bring the salt level up 400 ppm to 3400 total (hayward recommends 3200).
I am a first time pool owner, so from the folks that know this stuff, if it were yours what would you do from here? If you suggest adding or removing anything, please tell me what (product) and amount you recommend for doing so. 35,000 gallons.
if I need more FC, should I try the superchloriate option in aqua plus, or use shock?
