Thread: Water Balance Question

    Water Balance Question

    I have been running my pump for at least 8 hours and SWG @ 50% and I am maintaining a 2ppm FC level. I recall this being a little higher in the past but it just may be a combination of heat\sunlight and a kinda low CYA (current conditions). The water looks beautiful and other than the numbers I read, I do not have any immediate concerns. So I want to get a 2nd opinion on my numbers and see if my CYA is okay and\or if should I make any adjustments to my pool.

    FC - 2
    CC - 0
    pH - 7.6
    TA - 80
    CYA - 40/50

    Thanks!

    With a SWG, I recommend raising CYA into the 70 to 80 range. That will extend the lifetime of your SWG and generally reduce the odds of having problems.

    Everything else looks good.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. I feel like I'm loosing some FC to the sun.

    Thanks for the reply!
