I have an approx 8,000 gal above ground pool with a cheapie Intex SWG. My current levels are
Yesterday morning, my FC read 1.4. I added bleach according to the POOLMATH to get to 4 bc we were having a small pool party. I also run the SWG every day for 6 hours. The reading is fine, it is not detecting a high or low salt reading, but I donít understand how the FC can go from close to 4, then having a 6 hour SWG session and still only reading 0.8. Am I missing something? Could my salt be too high? I do not have a salt test to run.
Also, I just read on the SWG balancing page that I need to get my PH to 7.6 so I will get on that ASAP. I didnít realize 7.8 was too high. Could this be affecting the FC?
Oh, on the SWGís Manual, the ideal balance would be FC (0.5-3), and TA (100-140) and CYA (20-40). That doesnít match up with this site (which I have been doing and my water looks great just isnít keeping up with the FC). It says that a high TA will result in poor chlorine efficiency. I am just so confused!
It seems like I have to add bleach every day anyway, it makes me wonder why I bought the SWG? It is brand new by the way.
