    FB chemistry for warranty

    I got the maintenance and warranty information for my Leisure fiberglass pool and here are their recommendations
    - PH
    Strictly between 7.2 and 7.4
    Must be recorded monthly for warranty purposes
    - TA
    Ideal is between 80-120
    - FC
    Between 1 and 2, never exceed 5.

    I know it's slightly different than the BBB recommendations especially on the PH so will need to increase my acid to drop it since it 7.6 right now. But will have to go by them due to warranty reasons.
    Thoughts?

    Re: FB chemistry for warranty

    You can easily follow the method taught here and maintain those parameters.
    We normally recommend pH between 7.2 and 7.8 so you just limit yours to between 7.2 and 7.4. That seems pretty tight, but it's doable.
    We normally recommend a TA of 70 or so for a swg pool, but if you have to maintain 80 then that's not a problem.
    We recommend about 3 ppm for a swg pool so you're good there.

    You're right by following their recommendations to preserve the warranty.

    Dave thanks for the reply, makes sense will do and stay within range to ensure warranty compliance and BBB recommendations.
