    preparing for full water turn-over

    @mknauss as of this morning i'm already at 225 for CH. given we were only aiming for 250 to start, would you still recommend i add CaCl to raise it a slight amount to 250 or 300, or just leave it as is? also, keeping in mind i'm going to have to lower the water a bit and add fill water for the...

I know I'll need to bring that up when I turn the SWG back on, I still need to add salt first for that though obviously...aiming for 80 for CYA. as for the TA, my spillover is always on when the...

    preparing for full water turn-over

    yup. i wish we had known better when we had the pool built, we never would have gone with faux rock. the plan is to try to get another 3-4 years out of the current plaster, and then when we resurface the entire pool we are hoping to have the rocks taken out and a more traditional coping put in...

    preparing for full water turn-over

    at the risk of jinxing myself, I *think* we are good now, or close to it. this morning the water looks crystal clear like (or at least extremely close to) how I remember it before all of this started. next step: yet another OCLT tonight to see what happens. also, the joy of having the rock...
