My pool is in-ground and holds about 30,000 - 35,000 gallons.
It's a salt water chlorinated pool.
Main Filter is a Pentair FNS Plus (FNS 60).
I had my water tested by Leslie's Pool this morning, and they noticed three things:
- Salt was high (3700 ppm)
- Cyanuric Acid was low (28 ppm)
- Phosphates was high (200 ppb)
They recommended adding 10 Lbs of Conditioner (split into 3 x 72 hours periods), and adding 4 caps of Phos Free.
I added 4 caps of Phos Free and about 10 minutes later about 2 Lbs of Conditioner.
However, I just noticed that it said I had to wait with the Phos Free for 72 hours after adding Conditioner.
I know I should have read all the instructions BEFORE adding anything, but I was kind of in a hurry to get my pool looking good, and it's is beginning to get hot down here in Texas.
What will this mean? Have I ruined the effect of one or both of the chemicals, or have I created a dangerous mix?
Chemistry is not my best talent, so forgive me if that was a stupid question.
Also, for Cyanuric Acid, Leslie's Pool recommends a level between 60 and 99 ppm, but I have read other places that a level that high could cause other issues, so I am not quite sure if I should follow their advise.
On one hand, they are experts, but on the other hand, if they mess with the levels in my pool, I will end up buying more from them in order to fix it. I know that last part sounds paranoid, but again, I'm not a chemistry guy.
Thanks in advance for any answer or comment to this.
