OK, I've made the switch from Baquacil to BBB (pictures to come soon, I've got them ready to load)...
Here's my dilemma. I added 6 bags of salt before the PB came to install the SWG (Pentair Intellichlor). That was lower than recommended, but he wanted to stick to the low side to be safe, and then test salt levels. We've had an issue with the electrician, so the SWG is installed after my heat pump but has no power, so no SW generation until sometime next week.
Here are my current levels:
FC 0.0 (I added none since my conversion, thinking SWG would be working)
CYA I've not added any, assuming 0 but PB read 10 ppm
So obviously I've got to add some bleach today, the pool does have a slight green tint to it (ALOT of rain this weekend).
Besides that, I'm concerned about 3 things:
1) The TA is high, for SWG I understand I need 70 - 90. The PB recommends their Poolife pH Minus, is that a safe call? (I do have Muriatic Acid if all I needed to do was lower pH).
2) The PB gave me some stuff called Ocean Breeze Salt Support, looks like it's mainly CYA. Is that safe to add, or do I cut my losses and use regular CYA? And do I add that now, before the SWG is operational?
3) They also want me to raise my CH, which I would normally 'poo-poo' with a vinyl pool, but I'm not sure if CH levels matter with a SWG? I've seen recommendations of 400-450 for SWG in this forum.
Thanks as always
