1. ## Effects of adding fill water calculator

I was thinking the other day how a calculator like that would help me figure out where my TA was going to go after adding a few inches of fill water. For informational purposes I would have used it since I knew my TA was going to go up. Input your current test results, fill water test results and gallons of fill. How does that sound for a suggestion?

Does anyone know the math formula for calculating such a task? Ive tried to work it out on paper but nothing seems to make sense.

3. ## Re: Effects of adding fill water calculator

For most chemicals it is just a ratio. If you replace 25% of the water:
New level = 0.75*pool level + 0.25*fill level

Thanks for the reply. I came up with a formula before you replied that looks the same as what you replied with. I made a javascript calculator with this formula:

Total Gallons = Pool Gallons + Fill Gallons

Pool Gallons / Total Gallons = A
A x pool TA ppm = B
Fill Gallons / Total Gallons = C
C x fill TA ppm = D
B + D = Final TA ppm when mixed

Does that look right to you? I am willing to share the calculator with the community here so people will have an idea of what happens when fill water is added to their pool.

Looks right to me.

To circle back on what jblizzle said in post 3, if you are replacing water, The "Pool Gallons" in you equation is after draining.

I have the calculator made. Had to redo the equations since they got deleted somehow. Anyone interested in checking it out for flaws or suggestions?
I need some people to check it out. Im sure I will tinker with it some more. Where would I need to put it?
