Okay I recently switched from baquacil to BBB. Got a taylor 2006 test kit. Threw a ton of bleach in for days and the pool was converted in about 5 days. That has been about 2 weeks ago now. Basically all I have been doing it adding bleach to make sure its mainatining its levels but what else should i be checking here.
Here are my test #'s this evening.
now... i had no cya in the pool, obviously because I was on baq before, i purchased i believe it was 4lbs of stabilizer from the pool store, added it, a week later had my water tested at the pool store (before i got my taylor kit) and they said that my cya level was 0 i was really unsure how that could be possible but... thinking maybe it didnt disolve and it got backwashed out I was instructed to add 6 lbs... ok so now my levels are around 60... I'm not really sure how many gallons my pool is. I have a 28ft round above ground pool 48in in deep
what are my ideal chlorine levels now that my cya is 70
what other things should i be doing and testing?
my water is clear and looks great.
how do you test for borates? do i need to add borax and acid? i am clueless as far as what else i should be doing here. Last year was my first year with a pool and we did the baqucil. just switched this year because i had read the horror stories on the other pool forum so i decided to switch while the gettin was good LOL plus we spent and arm and a leg on chemicals last year.
anyway if you read this far thanks... any help would be appreciated!
