I've enjoyed reading all the great information at TFP. My pool was finished 2 months ago and I need a little help getting the numbers in line. To my best calculations I've got around 17K gals in my in ground Pebbletec pool with SWG. I'm just looking to make sure my thinking is in order before I do something that may be way out of line or not needed.
Temp 60 degrees F
Salt 3200 ppm
I know the pH is high and I will add acid.
The CH and CYA are low as well.
The Pool Calculator is telling me to add 24 pounds of Calcium Chloride to get the CH to 300. That just seems like a lot.
The pool has a spa so I'm thinking that CH of 150 may be better than 300. Perhaps someone can provide some guidance.
The CYA is 40 and I'm in an area that gets 350 days of bright sun a year so I should probably maintain it at 70-80. What do you think?
