Hi there thank you everyone in advance. This is a great site and a great community.
Well I just finished my pool build last month and I have been focused on getting the water perfect and maintaining it.
Here are my test results from my TFT-100
FC - 2.5
CC - 0
CYA - 30
PH - 7.4
TA - 66
CH - 150
FC - Pool builder is recommending 1.5 FC and 60 CYA. Based on my reading here that would be setting myself up for disaster as the CYA levels would render my Chlorine ineffective to perform its job of sanitizing my pool.
CYA Raided it today from 16 to 30 and I intend to continue to raise it up slowly through the month of August to 60
PH - has been rising everyday for the last month I've use 4 gallons of acid so far bringing it back down the rise seems too be slowing since the TA has come down
TA - Was over 100 but has slowly dropped as I have been knocking the PH down.
CH - Well my hose water measured 75ppm. My pool was at 100 and I just added 15lbs of Calcium Chloride and it went up to 150. I will add more this week end and jump it up another 50ppm
Over all water is clear and little bubbly when you jump in but my SWG doesn't seem to be able to keep up with the Chlorine depletion everyday. I seem to need to add Chlorine everyday just to keep it in the 2 range. Hopefully now that I have raised the CYA up it will be able to start keeping up.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
