    2 month old pool using 3 bags of salt per week

    So I got a K-1766 and it revealed 3200 vs my pentair app says 2950. So I think I identified one of my problems...normally I would be adding salt now... So my next step is adding CYA and getting my chlorine up?...what is the best way to do that as I have never added CYA since starting my pool...

    2 month old pool using 3 bags of salt per week

    Thanks for all of the input, I will look into further leak testing. I like the idea of dye testing...is there a certain pool dye recommended?...and do I start around the areas like my globrites and my underwater speakers? What is most common on a pebble sheen pool?

    2 month old pool using 3 bags of salt per week

    Thank you everyone for the feedback... So in conclusion what I am hearing that if my ~ 1 inch loss of water per day was due to evaporation I still would not have to add salt...so being that I am still having to add salt I still need to look further into a leak?...or does the salt degrade from...

    2 month old pool using 3 bags of salt per week

    Thank you for bringing up some good points. I was concerned about a leak at first and I turned my autofill off for 24 hours and monitored the evaporation. My pool designer mentioned that 1" of evaporation is normal during these summer conditions in vegas and in 24 hours it was just shy of an...

    Rookie Pool in Sin City

    Gotcha, my CYA was between 20 and 30...so 30 if we round up. Is there a certain product you would recommend to get my PH down?...I was thinking of going with muriatic acid. The start up instructions I was given from the pebble tec installer were very basic...fill the pool without stopping...

    Thank you very much for your responses...I do have the pentair SW generator but it is not connected yet as I was told to hold off on that for 30 days. Our pool has had water in it 1.5 weeks and we are anxious to heat it to get in...but we have not been connected yet by the gas company. I added...

    Aloha, I just completed my first water test with my TF100 and it sounds as if i need to add chlorine and get my ph down. Any words of wisdom would be appreciated. I am thinking of using muriatic acid and adding liquid chlorinator. cl = 1 ph = 8.2 TA = 160 My pool is 30k gallons and it has...
