    A confused pool owner!

    Which recommended levels should I be looking at?

    Haywards Equipment Operation Manual



    TFP Recommendations from Pool School


    Just a little confused of the levels I should be concentrating in? Any suggestions would be very helpful. Thanks

    If you cannot not read the Haywards Manual.
    FC 1 - 3
    PH 7.2 - 7.8
    Cyanuric Acid (CYA) 60 - 80
    TA 80 - 120
    CH 200 - 400

    My levels today were:
    FC 2
    PH 8.2
    TA 120
    CH 400
    CYA (still waiting for tube in mail)

    Trust Pool School ... Most other recommendations ignore the FC/CYA relationship.

    Trust pool school. If you have warranty concerns the TFP method will allow you to better control the LSI which is what most warranty programs seem to emphasize, and the CSI from the poolcalculator will REALLY allow you to monitor the overall water quality.

    Most other references consider each of the components individually without fully explaining the relationships between everything.
