    Thoughts on the recommendations?

    After a somewhat lengthy ******* contest with GLI about their liner warranty. (They wouldn't warranty the liner if improper chemistry was used, but they wouldn't define proper chemistry...) I just noticed that they had added these recommendations to their website:

    pH Daily 7.2 7.6
    Free Chlorine Daily 1.0 2.0 ppm
    Total Alkalinity Weekly 80 120 ppm
    Calcium Hardness Monthly 200 300 ppm
    Stabilizer Monthly 35 60 ppm

    The numbers work from a CSI standpoint, but I suspect they were diddled into submission with a faux CH. Their website incorrectly notes that human tears are pH of 7.4. These numbers vary from TFP thoughts a bit and nothing is mentioned of borates. I can't see FC of 2.0 and CYA of 60 ppm ever ending well. Where (or why) did these numbers come from? Thoughts?

    That is similar to, but not the same, as two of the common sets of recommendations that tend to appear. I imagine they simply borrowed it from some other source without any detailed consideration.
