Long time listener, first time caller
Very long story short, last summer was our first with a pool, and we were hard-core "pool stored." I came across TFPC over the winter, became obsessive, and decided to switch over. When we took the cover off last weekend, the pool was green, but manageable looking. My first results with the TF-100 had our CYA at an unreadable amount. I am guessing 250? We decided to get 11,000 gallons of water trucked in to do a partial drain and refill. (We are on a well, the water is hard, and I don't know the status of our well pump equipment enough to risk filling from the well.)
I started the SLAM process yesterday, and wanted to post my numbers from yesterday and today to see if you all think I am making good progress. The pool looks SUPER clear, but we are still losing FC at a pretty high rate. I guess that means press on... Let me know! Thanks so much!
FC - 0
pH - 7.2
TA - 140
CH - 350
CYA - 110 (best guess - I did it with 2:1 dilution, and the black dot disappeared between 50 and 60)
added like 12 gallons of 8.25% over the course of the day, trying to keep above 26
FC - 21
CC - 1.5
added 3 gallons of 8.25%, shooting for 31
FC - 15
CC - 1
added 4 gallons of 8.25%, shooting for 31
FC - 30
CC - .5
no addition of bleach, will retest again in a little bit
