    Where do I start with chemical correction?

    I wasn’t so much worried about the CYA and where it went, I just get surprised when it’s always 40. Like it makes me question if I’m doing the test right. Hahahaha. I don’t see any algae, so I don’t need to SLAM? Or I still should? That’s my biggest question I guess.

    Where do I start with chemical correction?

    FC: 0 PH: 7.2 TA: 90 CYA: 40 (how can it still be 40 from initial set up when we’ve added water a bunch of times?) Where do I start with correcting this? We have our house on the market and the balance got away from me. How long does the taking it down process take? I know it probably starts...

    Pool vacuum or robot

    I was looking at the Watertech Pool Blaster Volt fx8. But I also came across the Kokido Telsa 30 at a smaller price. Any advice between these?

    Pool vacuum or robot

    Hey all! Thoroughly enjoying our pool. Need recommendations for a pool vacuum or robot to help clean the bottom. Do the manual vacuums take a lot of time? Are any of the robots safe for our kind of pool?? I need bang for the buck. We have the Summer Waves Ultra 14’ x 42”. We are just using...

    Confirm my numbers

    I didn’t get overexcited to correct the pH and it’s more like 7.6 today. My chlorine dropped to 0.5 though. I put that number in with the goal of 5 and put in that much chlorine, hoping to swim in a little while. Should I retest later tonight and slam it? I read if it gets lower than 3 to do...

    Confirm my numbers

    Put the info into the pool math app...pH and TA. I weighed out the amount the app said to add. I added it. Now I think it’s overshot. This test was about an hour after adding it.

    You mean more Borax? I can handle that. Haha. Is there a recommended scale to weigh the dry chemicals? I just have this goofy kitchen scale. There’s gotta be a better way.

    Am I supposed to check TA? I went by the seasonal pool instructions here and so far have tested CYA, pH, and chlorine. Should I do the rest? Or swim for awhile today and check it again this evening?

    Here’s with paper. At what point can my daughter swim while I adjust the pH a bit more?

    Ohhh I dumped it. Let me go do it again. One second. It’s like 75 degrees last time I checked the temp. I don’t know what is considered swim able but my daughter is so excited I don’t think she would care. LOL

    Confirm my numbers

    Is this 5 and 7.2? do I need to adjust the pH more? Summer Waves 14x42. CYA 40. Followed the seasonal pool instructions and used pool math.
