We run two pools on Hypochlorite in the Philippines. Water temp. constantly around 30Ā° Celsius. The chlorine disappears nearly quicker than it can be replenished, white dust everywhere even now that we donĀ“t throw the granulate directly in the water anymore but in a sock placed in the water or skimmer, scale is forming and the pH is always around 7.8, nearly impossible to lower it with dry acid.
The pool dealer told us to use Guardex conditioner, Quote: "This chemical, when added to your pool water with the Niclon Chlorine, would be similar to the effect an organic chlorine would produce". The question is now: 1.: To have the Hypochlorite last longer I neeed CYA. Will it then be really the same as stabilized Chlorine? But to get rid of the scaling I better donĀ“t use Hypochlorite, right? If I use stabilized chlorine which should dissolve completely there is really no white dust and scaling anymore? But then the CYA will get too high over time. If I use pucks the same problems, I would like to know how long a 3" puck lasts in the skimmer on lets say 10 hrs pump run time?
How about using an SWG in CYA stabilized water, no fine dust and scaling and rising pH anymore?
Ideal seems to be liquid chlorine together with 25 ppm CYA. Why there is no 100% liquid chlorine available?
The same with acid, why there is no 100% acid? Is the dry acid more enonomical than bleach? How much 100% acid makes 5 Kg of dry acid?
Alum potass filter aid which seems to be readily available here since it is used as a anti-transpirant: How introduce it in the water, dissolve first or in the skimmer, how much to use per 5000 Gals?
Hope for a qualified answer out here.
