    NEW to BBB method this year Sanity check

    I am a second year pool owner and decided to give the BBB method a try here are my numbers, I think I am good but wanted a second opinion

    Pool is 40,000 gal plaster

    FC 6.5
    PH 7.4 (I have to add 1/2-1 gallon of acid per week to keep this down below 8)
    TA 60
    CH 250
    CYA 65

    Water is clear

    Any comments are appreciated

    Thanks

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Please add your pool details to your signature and location to your profile as described HERE as it will help us help you.

    Besides the CYA being a little on the high side for a non-SWG pool. Looks good to me. You just need to make sure you keep the FC > 5ppm at all times.

    Do you have a lot of aeration that is causing the pH to climb? Or is it new plaster? With the lower TA, I would not think your pH would be rising so fast unless there is an outside reason.

    Thanks for the quick reply, I can run 2 waterfalls but I try to keep them off unless someone is swimming. The pool was SWG when I got it last year but I went away from it after I had constant problems with the cells. I have been working to get the TA & CYA down for 6 months now. The pool is 10 years old

    I'd say you have things under control and you should stop worrying and go swimming.

    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!
