    water balance


    I have a in ground tiled pool with 19500 gallons of water, the CA is a constant 500 ppm, the pool is is sunshine 10 hrs a day, the water temp at 2 pm was 82 f and the ambient temp was 32 f. What would be the ideal chemical readings assuming the cya of 40. I was told that because of a hard water area that my pH should be 7.2. Can anyone shed any light keep getting information overload.

    Ta in advance

    I thought I saw the light at the end of the tunnel but it was just some PERSON with a torch walking toward me.
    I started out in life with nothing and I still have most of it left.

    Are you using the Look toward the bottom for the CSI and just make sure that is in range. You did not post a TA, so I can not do it. With the higher CH you will want the pH and TA a little lower, but 7.2 may not be necessary.
