I wish I took a before picture, but here is the after
Took that couple days ago, its even better today.
Was pretty green to start. Got my TF-100 kit, and got to work.
After SLAMing it for a few days, every day it got better.
These are my current levels:
TC - 7.5
FC - 7.5
CYA - 18 (black dot is barely visible at the top of the tube, so I am estimating here)
TA - 70
pH - 7.0
My CYA is still low, but I just added a bunch of stabilizer the other day, so I am waiting a few days to see if it goes up.
I need to add some baking soda to increase TA and pH a little based on the poolMath.
Now, I have an in-line chlorinator that I have not installed yet. Everything I am reading says I might not want to go with trichlor tabs, as it constantly adds CYA, which would eventually become a problem. Everything else for chlorine seems to be powder or liquid form, which wouldn't work with an in-line?
Should I go with trichlor and just keep an eye on CYA? Or do they have chlorine tabs that do not add CYA? Or do you suggest a different system?
