    First results with the TF 100

    CL 16
    CYA 55
    TA 110
    CH 360
    PH 7.4

    According to the pool store I also my phosphates are 1000

    I had my aqualine chlorinator set at 24% which is clearly too high. I dialed it down to 15% in an attempt to find the sweet spot. I have a vinyl pool, how troublesome is the Calcium Hardness?

    How low do I need the TA to be to stop the requirement of muriatic acid every three days? Thanks.
    16 X 32 Vinyl. Hayward aqua rite salt system, T -15 cell. Hayward H250 gas heater, Hayward 1HP superpump.

    Ignore phosphates. If you keep your FC at the appropriate level, then phosphates do not matter.

    Our recommendation for swg's is 60-80 ppm TA which works for most pools. See: http://www.troublefreepool.com/pool-...ater_generator

    Generally not a problem though high CH combined with high TA and high ph in some cases can cause scaling and cloudiness.
    TFP Expert who uses Pool School and my TF100 test kit along with PoolMath for my: Round 11K gallon AGP with deep end, 20" sand filter, Matrix 1hp 2spd, 6 2ftX20ft solar panels (and solar cover!), Intex SWCG (copper bars disconnected) and a Rubadub hot tub (chlorine). The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.
