I'm confused now . . . . . but not to worry that happens quite regularly.
I am about to add borates to my pool, and have read the articles in pool school diligently.
In the thread on balancing a SWG pool, it tells me the second step is to adjust my CYA to 70. Further down in the thread it summarizes:
FC 4-6 ppm
CH•50-300 for vinyl
•220-320 for fiberglass
•250-350 for plaster
Salt 200-400 ppm ABOVE recommended optimum level
Borates 30-50 ppm (optional)
I currently have my CYA at 55 and have been trying without success to raise it to 70. Now if I read this thread correctly I am ok leaving my CYA at 55 and just adjust my targeted FC to7?
I know that I want to adjust my PH and CYA to optimal numbers before adding borates, as they will be harder to adjust afterwards. Am I over-thinking this whole process?
