I have been reading up on the BBB method and all the information on this site - I have a TF test kit on the way, in the mean time I have taken a sample to a local (reputable) pool store.
Saturation index - 0.4 (little high because pH is also high)
CYA - 86
TC - 2.3
FC - 2.3
pH - 8.1
TA - 150
TA adjusted - 124
Hardness - 78
Salt - 3100ppm
I was reading when using an SWG that if my CYA is 80, my target FC should be 6 - when I talked to my installer after the sample he recommended that I add about 1/3 gallon muriatic acid to lower the pH. Does my FC level need to go up and or my CYA come down?
I have approximately 17100 gallons in the pool, my SWG is on 100%, 24hrs/day - it is an Aqua Trol RJ unit.
Any input from you other BBB members to help me get started...
