Thanks for helping me get started my first year after shut-down. I still have questions about balance. Some of my numbers are way high. I used pool math and will follow the advice. My question is about the high calcium and TA numbers. Here they are:
filled pool 6-1, ran SWG 8 hours 6-4-15 6-5-15
added 160 lbs salt per pool mfg. directions taken at 10:00 PM taken at 7:00 AM
added 1.6 lbs cyanueric acid SWG ran 8 hrs each night until
ran pump 12 hrs. tonight, shut down for testing,
pump ran approx 16 hrs/day
Reading on 6-3-15
FC 1.5 FC 4 FC 4
CC 0 CC .5 CC .5
CYA 40 CYA 60 ? CYA 40 (prob. wrong last night)
TA 400 TA 420
CH 675 CH 425
salt 4000 salt 4000
PH 7.2 PH 7.2
I am to add bleach and borax per pool math, no problem I can do that.
But should I remove some of the water to try to reduce the calcium numbers and the salt? I am concerned about the calcium numbers so high. Would appreciate advice prior to adding the chemicals if I should be replacing some of the water, especially if I should drain about 40% of the water. Our water is on the harder side in the Midwest, Illinois. Using city water.
Thanks so much. I appreciate all the advice.
