New to pool chemistry, so I wanted to just post and see if anyone sees problems headed my way.
At the moment the pool is just fine.
As mentioned on another post i'm trying to reduce my TA, which explains the low pH
pH 7.0 - 7.2, before this I have been keeping it below 7.6
TA 90-100 was 130ppm at the start of aeration
CC 0 FAS/DPD
CH 410 Pool was filled with well 220ppm well water, now maintained w softened water
According to Pool Math and the The Chlorine/CYA Chart http://www.troublefreepool.com/threa...rine-CYA-Chart
it seems that I can run my CYA and FC lower than the recommended levels for SWG pools. I assume that there must be some risk or tradeoff in running at the lower levels, but I don't understand why.
Keep in mind this pool doesn't get lots of use. The temp (no solar heat yet) has just reached the point where we are using it. We also keep the cover closed most of the time to reduce evaporation (California).
Thanks for any tips!
