    Low pH but high TA and pH keeps dropping

    Summary: Out of the tap my water has low-ish pH (7.2) and high TA (120). The TA has been stable but the pH keeps dropping. over the past 6 weeks I keep adding borax to raise pH but not affect TA and it works, but then after a week or two the pH drops again. I've scoured the TFP forums and Google...

    Is it possible to run weekly cleaning services with BBB method?

    I have followed instruction from TFP in past two month and the result is amazing. Water is sparking clean with no need for shock for more than a month. I had to drain water once to lower CYA to around 60, but the problem was a left-over from previous use of dichlor and trichlor. I am...

    Needing ~1 gallon of bleach/day??

    I had to drain a bunch of my pool because of CYA of ~110 or so. Since that time I have been judicious with my use of trichlor and have instead been using bleach to sanitize.

    Hi everyone! If my CYA is 40 (just BARELY over 40...a couple lines above the 40 mark lol), how many trichlor pucks can I get away with using until my liquid chlorine arrives in less than a week? I really do NOT want to increase my CYA much. They are the 3” (8 oz.) ones. I have two individual...

    Trichlor and Liquid Chlorine experiment!?

    Hey TFP friends. So something that has been on my mind that I’m implementing. I’m having great success in my first month of pool ownership with the TFP method. Something to ponder and hear some feedback on. Here in AZ where a typical summer day is 105+ with all sun with very little cloud cover...
