    New pool–Filled April 10th

    Just wanted to update now that I'm starting to get used to the process and see if most of this sounds correct. In the evenings I've been adding about a half gallon of bleach on a regular day and a gallon of bleach on a swim day. And 2-4 cups of MA. Current reading this evening after a swim...

    We are going with the Chaise Deep for that shelf. I'll be sure to post a pic once all the furniture arrives. The color is Bombay, and I think the texture is called "Classic". I can take a close up tomorrow. We talked about it but opted against it. The PB showed us some pretty cool examples...

    Thank you, sounds like I can stick with the trichlor pucks for a few more weeks until my CYA gets up the that level (and adding bleach as needed for good FC level). Once CYA hits 50 ppm and I'm just supplementing with bleach and MA to stay in my FC and PH targets, the CYA shouldn't really change...

    Day 2 of taking it off and putting it back on: 4:41 off 12:08 on Our design and rocks definitely make it a challenge. On a more standard shape with no rocks I bet it could be 3 minutes off and 8 minutes on.
