I've been doing TFP for a few years with our previous pool, but somehow I still second guess myself. I'd just like a fresh set of eyes to check that I'm doing things right.
We just moved and built new pool, which was filled 11 days ago. I know there will be fluctuations for a while due to new plaster curing so for now, I will post my last two results (with TF-100).
CC - 0
FC - 2 (added 160 oz of 8.2% bleach)
Ph - 7.2 (I've been adding MA for the last week to keep it between 7.2 & 7.5 and it seems like it finally stopped creeping up).
TA - 100 (also has been dropping slowly with the balancing of Ph, it was 130 last week)
CH - 110 (added 5lb of hardness plus yesterday, in three increments in a span of 2 hours)
Today's results stayed the same (chlorine is not holding up) but CH did go up to 170.
-Normal that chlorine is dropping this much?
-Do I keep raising the CH until I reach 250? Or do I focus on lowering TA?
