First I want to say that I am very happy with my pool since using TFPC. The water is always clear and inviting, I just wish it would warm up LOL.
With that said, while my water is always clear, it just seems to lack that sparkle that I see in pools here.
Here are yesterday afternoon's full numbers (Taylor K2006):
CYA was just about 40ppm last time I checked, pH is very stable.
Back to my sparkles LOL. For the first time since getting the kit I actually read the book that came with it. Very good read actually. So now I plug my numbers into the Watergram Balance Calculator that came in the kit to find I have a SI of -1.3
Now, I feel all my numbers are good, great actually. But she just doesn't sparkle.
Would getting my SI closer to zero help my pool water sparkle?
With TA & pH where it is I would need to bump CH to almost 400ppm for an SI of zero.
Am I barking up the wrong tree?
Edit: After playing with the Watergram a bit I see that if I shoot for an SI of -0.5 I only need to bump CH to about 120ppm.
