This is my first complete test of our new pool water (using Taylor Kit). The results are close to the pool calculator suggestions.
pH - 7.4
TA - 110
CH - 210
CYA - 40
Free Chlorine - 4.4
Total Chlorine - 0.6
Saline level - 3,400 (25% on readout)
I've left my pump running 24/7 to this point. However, I'm a little leery of my hydro usage/bills. Ideally, I would like to reduce the pump run time a little during the day - only running it at night during our cheap time (we have "smart" meters here). However, I've read that the sun in our bright/full sun backyard burns away my chlorine. Is it a mistake to start tinkering with the pump run time at this point?
Any thoughts on my test results would be appreciated big time. I will work on posting some pictures of our pool next!
Cheers and thanks in advance.
