My pool is going to have a waterfall, 2 laminars, jets inside a Grotto, and 2 Bubblers. From what I've read on this forum, water features may cause PH to vary and, accordingly, an acid pump may be a good idea in that situation. I have also read that a high TA fill would be a reason to add an acid pump, but I am not sure if that applies to me. First of all, I assume a "high TA fill" refers to after a pool is filled, if when you are adding additional water to the pool to replace lost water it is high in TA. But correct me if I'm wrong. I plan to have an autofill hooked up to my outdoor faucet (which I am pretty sure is connected to my water softener). I recall them bypassing my sprinkler system when I installed the water softener, but I think the outdoor faucets are connected to it. I don't know if that information is helpful in determining whether I have a "high TA fill."
If I do get an acid pump, what model should I get? Most of my equipment is Jandy (although my SWG is an Auto pilot). Is there any reason to want such a pump hooked up to my IAQUALINK?
My pool was gunited already and in a week or so the PB will be doing all the plumbing. I assume if I want the acid pump I should install it now, as I imagine it will be much harder otherwise. If you have an acid pump, does it matter where in the pool the acid get put into the pool? How exactly is that done?
