I am new to the TFPM way, & oh so glad! Have the TF-100 test kit... My 16X32 IG pool has beautiful, crystal clear & sparkling water...BUT...here are the readings from last evening:
CC: 5.0 (eek!)
with that CYA, I did partially drain the pool to the bottom of the skimmer, & refilled: vacuumed & backwashed the filter (DE). Looking like a SLAM is in order (right?)...w/ CYA of 70, saw that FC should be 28 w/ shock; pool calc said 855oz 8.25% bleach to up FC by 26.
Have added 8 gallons 8.25% bleach, & here are current test results:
pH: 7.2 ( but can't trust during slam, right?)
Headed in right direction w/ drop in CC, but FC no where near goal of 28... Also, CYA level now 60...really am trying to get the hang of that test-- am following directions precisely; often find myself closing one eye...is that ok? Shall I recalculate my goal FC?
Would greatly appreciate guidance! Thanks!
