    First test of the year!

    Well the weather has been getting warmer here and the water is finally staying around the 59* mark consistently so it's time to check the numbers.
    FC 4
    CC 0
    TC 4
    PH 8.2
    CYA 55-60
    TA 110
    Hardness 550
    Borates 30-50 looks like either...lol
    Salt 3100

    Really impressed with the Borates holding all winter! I thought for sure I was going to have to reaply. My DIY dosing pump seems not to be working so the PH is sky high!

    Hey, Max,

    As Tonto used to say, "Long time....no talk"

    Get that pH down, your CH is too high to be flirting with trouble up there in the 8's. I would suggest you hold pH around 7.5 or below for the rest of your life!!

    Hey Dave! Been doing allot of reading, not much posting! I like my PH around 7.4, as for my CH, can't seem to lower to acceptable numbers? Was working on a detailed DIY bearing replacement on pumps but it turned into a disaster and now I have to replace my pump before the big KA BLAMO! But I can't get a good answer on how to do it with wiring it up?? Talk to 10 people get 10 answers??

    Does "hardness" mean calcium hardness? If so, you nee to change out water to lower it.

    550 is above normal but it isn't crazy high. You shouldn't have to change much water out to get it down.

    Yes 257, CH. Tomorrow I am going to test my tap water. Last year I drained quite a bit of water if I remember?
