Had a pool resurface with new pebble, new in floor heads, and a boulder waterfall added this early spring....was taking my water sample to pool store daily and ended confused and frustrated, then I found you guys...doing my own testing (old guys can still learn)
Because of my faith in the pool store....I made mistakes, my CYA is way high and will drain this winter, but the summer heat is here temps have been 108 - 115 for 2 weeks and here to stay until late fall.
My Current numbers are FC - 13, CC - 0, PH - 7.5, TA - 100, CH - 320, CYA 130-160?
Pool in full sun from 9:00am - 5:00pm, temps past week have been 110 - 112
I loose about 2.0 - 3.0 FC daily, my PH seems to rise at about a .2 - .3 daily, do these numbers sound about right? Does the PH swing higher because of new surface?
Borates, is this something good? should I consider adding? with my numbers should I ?
Thanks (thanks for this web site and you guys for the wealth of information) (I also just place an order with TFTestkits - recommended from here)
