I finally opened our pool & tested the water.
We converted from baquacil last fall, I put in some CYA with the cover still on. It's been dissolved for about a week. Now I'm vacuming the bottom. There was only a little dust and some leaves. The water is chrystal clear. (Finally)
12500 gal AG with sand filter
Here are my numbers:
FC: 8 or 9
can't tell for sure. Had to dilute.
CYA: 38 or 39 (Guessing. It is a tad under 40)
This is only the 2nd day with the cover off. The pool will get full sun most of the day. How much 6% bleach should I expect to add every day? (Or how much FC will I loose on average per day?)
What to do to get the TA down?
Do I have to worry about the low CH?
Should I shoot for a higher CYA?
I plan on testing every day at first, with keeping a "Weather Diary" until I get a better feel for all the changes. Any tips on how to set it up & what to keep? Right now I'm just printing out the Pool calculator results every time I plug in new numbers.
Thanks for all the help already received during our conversion,
Thanks in advance for all the help I'll still need in the future!
