New pool, Been circulating pump 24 hr a day since set up as it was well water on a second fill, and got some sediment. I used the t-50, and set my chemicals based on pool calculator. I hadn't tested CYA & TA again until today (it's been a week since we filled roughly) and I wanted to wait to see if it had stabilized. We are running SWG (intex) 6 hr. a day, but seems like the Cl and FCL is kinda high( it is very yellow at least 5 on the color comparison in the water tubes.So I was thinking of cutting the SWG back to 4 hr. as the chart says. Hubby for some reason put it on 6 hr..
Ok so ph was up to 8.2 ( we had a couple inches of rain)...so I put dry acid in based on pool calculator last night. Today I tested everything ------------ temp 84. TA-110-120 . CYA 90,CL 5,FC 5,ph 7.8and salt test strips say 6....assume 6ppm.
Pool Calculator said to replace 11% of water.............really? If I did what it said before , then way are numbers off still?
