    TFP Web Pool Calculator Vs App Calculator

    Honest answer.......yes. Plaster damage like this takes some time. Keep things around -0.3 and 0 and you’ll be just fine.

    TFP Web Pool Calculator Vs App Calculator

    One item to toss out there for you @Roadkill On the webpage version of PoolMath, can you hit F5 to update your page. I suspect you’re viewing a very old code that has been updated. As Marty mentioned the math is the same for both currently. Only item that may slightly change is rounding...

    Why is the industry standard TA 80-120ppm?

    It’ll likely be some time before you see these changed I suspect. The reasoning is because a high TA actually serves a Purpose, to prevent crashing the pH when pucks or Trichlor are used. Seeing how these forms of chlorine are so common, I suspect high TA will stick around for some time.

    CSI winter ?

    With the cold water temps you are toying with damaging your surface. This may take years to do, but you’re reducing the lifespan of your plaster and increasing the odds you’ll etch your plaster. The App is simply giving you a heads up that you may wanna take action. During the winter it’s...

    If Calcite Saturation Index in correct range, does PH matter so much?

    You will ALWAYS have salt in the water if you’re using chlorine of any type. Because of this fact we’ve set a default salt level at a “best guess” level of 1,000ppm. You can override this level and insert a zero level for salt, but it likely won’t be as accurate.

    How important is CSI?

    How important is CSI? It’s anywhere from a worthless number to a vital piece of info for your pool......one of those two. 😀 CSI as a number can be set aside for many pool owners. Users can often skip paying attention to this number as long as they can easily maintain TFP’s on a daily basis...

    Borates & Vinyl liner

    Before jumping into borates I’d try running the pool for a month or two without, just to get an idea of how your pH will sway. With the setup you describe it is possible you’ll see your pH increase, in which borates for sure will help. Especially if you have a SWG.

    Do NOT add 50 pounds of Cal-Hypo! Note that will also increase your chlorine level to around 100ppm. Take a look at this article as well, https://www.troublefreepool.com/blog/2019/01/18/start-up-new-plaster/

    Extreme Phosphate Milk Filled Pool

    I suspect that the cloudy water was caused by the phosphate remover reacting to the phosphates and will get filtered out in a few more days. This is a negative of phosphate removers of almost any kind and should have been openly disclosed to you by the pool store. In the future you can easily...

    Lamotte v. Taylor.

    What you are shown here is totally accurate, but misleading at the same time. pH does in fact play a major part in the amount of active HOCL............when there's NO CYA in the water. Add CYA and you're golden. Take a quick look first at the following video and then take a read in some...

    Is pH missing in the FC/CYA chart?

    I think he’s wondering if the pH level plays a part in what level FC the user should be at? Like if pH plays a part in how strong chlorine is?? If that’s your question @TexasBR the answer is kinda. This video should explain more.

    Calcium levels

    As likely mentioned in this thread one of the main reasons we suggest you bump the CH level up some is to help with CSI as your water gets cooler. You’ll have a fair amount more “wiggle room” over the Winter if your CH is 350’ish verses 250. Now keep in mind both of you likely keep the pool open...

    New CYA level guidelines?

    In the industry there have been some rumbling about it maybe best for users to maintain a lower CYA level. I’ve seen it in a few online magazines, and their logic is getting better, but still misses the mark. More and more the industry is seeing the truth behind the FC/CYA ratio. At the same...
