I am a little over a week into my new AGP and I'm using the TFP method. I run my 150 sq ft cartridge filter on low for 3.5 hours in the morning and 5 hours at night. My numbers are as follows:
Water Temp is 72
I've been using my target for FC at 5 and hitting it with no problems. My pool is getting sun most of the day. If it's sunny my FC will be 3 by night time and I'll add 23 ounces of 8.25% and get it back to 5. If it's overcast it will be stay 5 for a day (and I'll add nothing) then back to 3. Is this normal to add 23 ounces of 8.25% most days or should I increase the CYA to say 40?
Also, I'll be away for 4 to 5 days in a few weeks. Should I raise it to slam level before leaving or is there something else I should do?
Thanks in advance for the help.
