My name is Rob and I just took my first dip in my 21 ft AGP!!
Will be building the side deck this week. I may even snap a few photos
Anyway.. been reading heavily here and I think I'm pretty preparred for pool ownership. My AquaTrol SWG seems to be pumping out chlorine and my pool is crystal clear.
I do have one quick question..
I noticed this afternoon that my PH and TA are both low (compared to the recommended number on both pool school and the Aquatrol manual.
Will added baking soda do the job to raise both?
Here are my numbers:
FC - 5 (need to dial down the SWG)
CYA - 50 (added my first dose of Conditioner a few days ago. I will wait a few more days to make sure the numbers are accurate before I add any more)
PH - 6.8 (hard to tell exactly with the Strips I have. But it's def below the recommended 7.5)
TA - 30
Salt - Strip says 3200 AquaTrol readout is saying 3300.
Temp 65 - Yikes!!
Also.. I ordered the TF100 testkit last week and it should be here tomorrow. I'm currently using the test strips that Hayward included in the SWG.
This site is awesome!
