    Swimming by March 2020!!! (We hope...)

    nice layout... forget the UV for sure. as far as the pucks go, most of us are on this site because of using them. SWG or liquid is better. i also think the dark coping is going to be HOT in the daytime getting in and out of the pool. one other thing is the 3 1/2 foot depth is too shallow for...

    Zero chlorine all of a sudden

    i don’t think you’re running your swg long enough. a t3 produces about a half a pound of chlorine gas over 24 hours. in your 9k gal pool, that’s about 7ppm of chlorine per 24 hr day at 100%. that’s .3 fc/hour (at 100%). so your 9am to 5pm pump runtime would only give you a 2.7ppm increase in fc...

    I have to completely drain my pool

    as the title says, the pool manufacturer has to drain my fiberglass pool to repair a peeling gel coat problem. i also have a lot of iron staining on the walls from the rural water district. so here’s my plan; i lift the stains with an AA treatment, then drain it. after the gelcoat is repaired...

    CYA level Chlorine burn off.

    20ppm is too low for sure. i wouldn’t go to 80, but i think i’d give 50 ppm a try. also, anytime you add acid (cya), you will lower TA and ph. so make sure you monitor those
