    Re: Green pool posting numbers

    PoolMath(link above) should work for you.

    In order of importance:

    FC -- get some bleach in there asap PoolMath tells me 225oz of 8.25% this should get you to 6 FC

    pH -- 20 oz 31.45% MA This should get you pH 7.5

    CYA -- 83 oz of dry Place half of this in an old sock and hang it by the running return. do not add the rest yet! The full dose would get you to 35, but do it in stages


    Let these additions settle for a day with the pump running.

    Re: Green pool posting numbers

    Ok, one question, how did you get the 10 for your CYA reading the view tube that comes with the TF-100 only goes down to 20?

    At 20 I could still see a faint image fill up top of tube. Never really got it up past 20-40 last season

    With an SWG, pH will climb on it's own. Just monitor it and bring it down when it reaches 7.6-7.8

    Re: Green pool posting numbers

    Just make sure to turn the SWG off while your SLAMing. No need to run it for the SLAM process.

    Re: Green pool posting numbers

    FC must be below 10 in order for your pH test to be valid. I would let FC drop to 9 or so, and retest pH. Bring pH to 7.2, raise TA, to 70, then continue with the SLAM.

    Re: Green pool posting numbers

    Thank you for the information. I'll wait for the FC to fall then make my adjustments. I'll also will raise my CYA to keep my numbers in line for the SWIG.
