FC - 2 ppm
TAC - 2
pH - 7.6
TA - 60
CH - 200
CYA - 40
Phos - 300 ppb
Salt - 2100
The above numbers were given to me today from Leslie's. According to them I need to:
Add three 40 lb. bags of salt
Add one gallon of Instant Pool Water Conditioner
Add eleven pounds of Alkalinity Up
Add 20 fl oz of PHOSFree
These recommendations seem in line with what the PoolCalculator came up with.
Two things, if I may:
The prices of their products is astronomical ! Can anyone please recommend different brands of chemicals or substitutes like baking soda or something?
Secondly, if I buy a 35lb. drum of Alkalinity Up, how do you weigh it out so that I put in 11 pounds? a scale ?
