    Alk TA 80

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    If you have read anything here, you should likely be aware of how "highly" we feel about pool store testing.

    If you see algae in the pool you need to follow the Shocking Your Pool PROCESS using one of the Recommended Test Kits. This is also usually done with the SWG off. Once complete, you can raise the CYA to the the Recommended Levels.

    You should be cleaning the filters when the pressure rises 20-25% over the clean pressure ... this is be often when you have algae and one of the downsides of having a cartridge filter.
