    Adjustment Order

    I found TFP over the winter when I was having some issues since my SWG had shut off and have been reading and learning since then. Last summer was our first with the pool after having it put in during the spring. We got lucky and the pool stayed in great shape without me knowing or doing anything. I'm sure our numbers were way off but we didn't have any outbreaks and the water looked great.

    This year I am working to get all of my numbers in allignment with the TFP recommendations. I just finished a SLAM and am starting to adjust everything else and was curious if it mattered which order I approached it in or if I could attack it all once.

    My current readings are:

    PH: 7.5 (the PH is usually super high 8+ from the high TA and aeration)
    FC- 21 ppm (passed overnight, have SWG off and letting it come down today)
    CC-.5 ppm
    TA- 260 ppm (on a well)
    CH- 300 ppm
    CYA- 35 ppm
    Salt- 3200 ppm
    Borates- 0 ppm

    The water looks great, crystal clear and sparkly.

    I'm looking to add CYA, lower TA and add borates while maintaining PH.

    Get your CYA up and bring your TA down before messing with Borates.

    You can achieve that by Lowering Total Alkalinity.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
