    pool store numbers

    Switched to a swg about a week ago. Waiting for my new test kit to get here. In the meantime I had a store test my water and it was showing the following

    Fc 6.02
    Ta input 66
    Adjusted ta 49
    Ph 7.6
    Cya 51( added solid a week ago)
    Ch 83
    Si -0.4 corrosive

    Telling me to increase TA and CH. Us this correct ?

    Nope. Vinyl pool doesn't care about low CH - there's no plaster to etch.

    I don't know the difference between input and adjusted TA. They're slightly low, but not so far out of whack that I'd rush to fix since pool store results are usually off.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Ya that's what I figured. I think they are still upset because they lost good business since I found this site.
