its been about 2-3 weeks since I started using the TFP methods. The water looks great and really easy to care for. Now its time for the big 30+ swimmer bash on July 5th. I'm looking to ensure I'm ready.
PH is low as I added 40oz of MA last night. With the slide and the high TA, my PH rises about .1 a day. So my PH should be just about perfect for the 5th. My tap water has a TA of 320 so I likely will not being topping off the pool which is down about 1/2 inch.
FC loss is about 1.0 a day with normal use, little higher when the cover is left open all day. So I will likely bump 1-2 FC about 6 hours ahead of the party, to put me at the top of my FC to CYA range, depending on testing.
Filter is at 22 PSI and I normally backwash at 30 PSI. So likely will not backwash ahead of the party. Understand a clean sand filter is less effective anyway. Truth or myth?
Fresh skimmer sock and scum ball deployed.
Brush and vacuum on my day of list, but it really doesn't need it.
Any thing else you can think of that I should be doing ahead? I do have 20+ pounds of MPS (Non-chlorine shock) left over from my pre-TFP days. Does it make sense to add some ahead of the party as an extra oxidizer? Its not like I can return it so any down side to using it up? I should note that I have the DEOX reagent for my K2006 kit and my current MPS is 0.
Thanks in advance! Hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th!
