  1. Back To Top    #1

    Results from first test..

    13.5 ppm FC
    0 CC stayed clear
    500ppm CH
    130 TA
    72 CYA
    7.5 PH
    5-10 CL BR

    I know my TA is high, I need to add acid I think and run pump with waterfall.

    FC is a bit high, but not much I can do.

    Seems I need to flush some water.

    Re: Results from first test..

    your numbers look good. don't interpolate CYA, if you are over 70...then assume 80 as your CYA. the recommend FC level for that is 9 and you are at 13. nothing wrong with that, and it will come down in a few days. your absolute minimum FC is 6. don't EVER let it go below that.

    don't worry about TA, it only affects pH. if your pH gets high (7.8) then add acid to lower it back down to 7.2 or so. this process will lower your TA and your pH will stabilize. only thing you have to watch is pH. how quickly is your pH rising??? if not super fast, no worries.

    is this a freshwater or saltwater pool? update your profile to add your pool info to the signature.

    also, which test did you use? put that in your signature as well

    You can update yor profile location that goes under your member username through "Settings". In addition, you can modify your signature with the type or pool and equipment you have. To add your pool info to your signature, do so by going to the top of the TFP web page (just under the Pool School button) and select "SETTINGS". On the next page look to the left for a menu bar that says, “MY SETTINGS” and go to "EDIT SIGNATURE" to enter your pool and equipment info there. It will help us later.
