this is a new pool. finished filling it last monday - took 4 days using well water. initial test results were
FC - 0
TC - 0
pH - 6.8
TA - 40
CH - 50
CYA - ?
we drink the well water, its clear, and tasteless, quite good.
am wondering why the ph is so low at 6.8. any ideas?
today i'm going to be conservative- and add 1 kilo of CYA acid- granulated- just to get in a bit until i can test for it,
and 1 kilo of soda ash- to see how it affects the levels i can measure thus far.
so far have only added 900gms of granulated chloro on 4 separate nights- it's 70% fc.
i bought some more chems today at last. cya, granulated chloro, and soda ash.
still looking for the others.
can only find bicarb in the super- 100 gram bags- quite useless i fear.
can't find a decent test kit -will have to keep looking.
when i ask for a test for CYA they all say NOPE don't have one, and you don't need it anyways. lol go figure.
i see its going to be a problem here in costa rica, who would have thought-with so many pools here
any ideas - if pools supply stores don't carry them, what other industry might i try?
at least the water is still nice and clear-hoping itdoesn't get too far ahead of me.
