I am a little unsure whether or not I should stick more closely to the Intex handbook preferred water chemistry.
Last season I was keeping the FC 4, CYA 40, CH around 100, TA 100, PH7.5.
Now the Intex book tells me that the FC should be no higher than 3 and I was thinking that after my recent algae 'situation' I would keep the FC a bit higher this season, which is starting now.
Also my CH is well below their ideal even though I find I never have to clean the SWG with such low CH. I have heard that low CH causes brittleness in plastic parts which Intex rely on quite...er...heavily.
Can I keep my FC higher than they suggest and my CH lower than they suggest?
I do agree that CYA needs to stay quite low compared to the min suggested CYA for SWG given here on TFP (too many abbreviations??) as the SWG is not the most powerful and would struggle to produce the FC needed to keep up with a CYA of say 60-80.
