    Third Year

    This will be my third year year using the TFPC method and love it. I just opened my pool today since it finally hit 60 degrees. Other than some leaves and dirt resting on the bottom from getting around the pool cover, the water was perfectly clear. After filling it back up I did some testing:

    FC: 6.5
    CC: 0
    PH: 7.0
    TA: 90
    CYA: 40

    Added a little borax and it looked good enough to the wait starts for warmer weather. Foot tapping
    12'X20'X48" AGP
    6300 gallons (according to poolcalc)
    Hayward 180T sand filter
