    OH BOY . I got troubles.

    Dont worry too much, Fiberglass pools dont need CH. Used softened water for fill for now until you can drain or heavy rains will dilute Ch.

    One inch tabs in three inch feeder

    Your skin condition is what is setting you up for cracking, not the chlorine. You can blame all chemicals in a pool, but that is not the underlying problem. Please consult with your Dermatologist.

    One inch tabs in three inch feeder

    Here is a nice table. All forms of asociated cyanurates tend to be acidic. It does not really matter much since the additions are usually by dissolving so its a gradual lowering of the ph. if you intend to rub your eyes with any for of associated cyanurates you will most likely result in a...

    Im confused, are you still testing CYA with 50/50 pool to tap water? You stated: If this is so, then your CYA is at 160 and need to drain a lot more. Also remember that PH test is invalid above FC 10 or more. If you have 7.5ph then your ph is a lot lower. Wait until the FC drops below 10 and...

    pool sanitizing systems - silver ion versus salt

    Remember to size the SWG 2x. If your pool is 20,000gallons you buy a 40,000gallon SWG.

    Help buying supplies and getting water under control.

    Try not to use your Cal Hypo anymore. Your Ch is high enough for a vinyl pool. Have you ever added Algaecides to the pool or your pucks have the word Blue? The green tint might be copper.

    pool sanitizing systems - silver ion versus salt

    We dont recommend any type of metals for pool sanitation(silver, copper, etc..) They can stain your new plaster finish. The universal sanitation method has been liquid chlorine. Iam building a second pool and it will be a SWG pool.

    Help with PH

    I would not swim in a pool with a ph lower than 7.0. To harsh on the eyes and skin.

    Help with PH

    Copper is what turns blond hair green. It either came from the heater core as you mentioned or by adding copper based algecides or Tabs/pucks with BLUE words in it. You need a full drain and refill. Start fresh. You need a proper. When you say Borox, is it Boric acid or Sodium Tetraborate? Make...

    No need to add more than one scoop of powder, if it does not turn pink then its 0 FC. Keep adding liquid bleach until it holds.
