    After a few days and a few swim sessions, new results!

    So I've added 8 lbs of stabilizer and run my SWG for 5 hours each day and I keep my pump running 24/7 on low speed. Here are my results from my 2nd full set of tests:

    FC 6.5
    CC 0.5
    TC 7
    PH 7.2
    TA 160
    CH
    CYA 60
    SALT 3800


    So according to the Pool Calculator it's telling me to add 6 lbs of Borax and 2 pounds more of Stabilizer. Sound about right?



    Thanks guys!

    How long has it been since you added the stabilizer ?

    granular stabilizer can take up to a week to fully register on the test, so give it some time, and hope you have not over shot

    You might want to wait before you add anymore. Stabilizer sometimes takes a couple of days to a week to fully register.

    You can always add more if needed. It's a real pain to lower.
