Hi all, been sniping around the past couple of days. What a wealth of information. My house is in Grand Prairie, TX...south of Dallas.
Ok just moved into a new house with a 1 year old gunite pool.
Pool is a little smaller then 11,000 gallons.
1hp Century Centurion pump with Hayward sand filter I believe.
Pool light has been on 24/7 for 3 weeks maybe since they moved out til closing today. Pump seems to be running around 8hrs a day on a timer.
There is debris in the pool from the own guys and a little bit of algae on the walls
Purchased a Talyor/Leslie 81329 kit today and pulled a sample at 9:30pm.
pH 7.65 tough to tell
Seems from your articles I need FC to be at 5 since my CYA at 40 and CC is ok as long as its under .5ppm.
My biggest concern I'm guessing is my CH at 900. Had to test three times, third time i did the high version of the test. I read that you can add acid to lower CH vs draining the pool!
How best do I fix my FC and CH levels?
Is my pool ok to swim in this weekend after a little cleaning?
Thanks in advance.
P.S. I'm thinking about getting a Polaris 9450 robotic cleaner. Any cons? Was looking at the DX5 and Tigershark models but the Polaris can be serviced by my local store supposedly.
