OK, so pool went up Friday, was filled by Saturday afternoon.
It looks great, and water is nice and clear! (thanks to you all).
I do have a couple questions, but first, here are my average numbers:
FC: runs from 3-5 (I usually add liquid chlorine at night to keep it in the 4 or 5 range)
CC: after first day or so, it's mostly 0, occasionally .5
Ph: Started high at 8.0, then took it too far down to 7.0. Now it's staying around 7.6-7.7
TA: First landed at 80, is now consistently 100
1) I'm having to fight to keep the Ph down far enough. Would this be because the TA needs to come down? We have been running the pump 24/7, but 90 percent of the time on low speed. Is it possible the pump is running too much, as in aerating a little much, thus increasing Ph?
2) CYA--I thought I was careful to not over-add, and the sock method worked great. The reading showed up pretty quickly, within a day or two. I've tested it several times (have run out of CYA reagent, in fact), and it does hold steady at 50. But since the results often don't show up for several days, is it possible/likely that if I test this weekend (the 1-week mark) that a higher CYA will show up? That I really don't want.
