    Ascorbic Acid Treatment Issue

    Thanks again Texas. Strong backs indeed! Actually, no algae problems and it has been 70's and even low 80's. Early spring will be high 50's when open and zero chlorine so glad I bought 8 lbs AA! Still have at least 4-5 lbs left! Looks like I'll get back to it early spring and go for small...

    Ascorbic Acid Treatment Issue

    Thanks Texas! What if I close as is and deal with it in spring? I have my sons home to help today in a few hours and am travelling next week - do not want to wait until Oct with leaves falling here. Is there a likelihood of more permanent stains if I leave them for 7 months? I'd also consider...

    Ascorbic Acid Treatment Issue

    Hi All, I had some staining and used a vitamin C tab to test and it came right off. So, I read all the articles here about ascorbic acid treatments of stains and followed closely. Worked so fast and amazingly well. Really impressive. I kept PH at 7.2 and slowly raised chlorine over a couple...

    Why 4-6 ppm FC for SWG?

    Why 4-6 ppm FC for SWG?

    Hi All, Been part of TFP for years and have a good degree of mastery of chemistry. I'm wondering the rationale for recommending 4-6 ppm for a pool with SWG? It definitely seems to take color out of my liner quicker than when I kept levels of FC at 1-3 ppm. Wondering the reasoning so I can...

    High PH - low Alkalinity -- SWG

    Thanks Richard! Very helpful. I need something which will decrease TA without much effect on PH and 1/4 of the price - can't beat that. Perfect. Is there a good substitute for dry acid? For the record - I have definitely read about this in the past in the past on Pool School - it is definitely...

    High PH - low Alkalinity -- SWG

    Hi All, I've been smooth sailing for some time and am now in a tricky spot with my SWG. TA has been hovering around 50/55. not too bad but a bit lower than I'd like. PH hovering around 7.8. not too high but near the top of range. Yesterday PH went to about 8.0 and I used Leslies Dry Acid to...
