    Before and after

    Well the pool was installed two weeks ago and the pump was hooked up this past tuesday...as previously posted I went to work on reducing my TA...plus we have had some rain lately, so that has helped with my CH. I'm trying to get ready for a SWG and here is where I'm at today

    BEFORE:
    Fill Water
    PH - 7.2
    CH - 470
    FC - 0
    TA - 360


    AFTER
    FC - 7.5
    CC 0
    TC 7.5
    PH 7.2 (I'll adjust to 7.5-7.6 when I add my 50ppm borates next week...have a 4 boxes of 20 mule/some MA and ordered 15lbs of boric acid from the chemistry store)
    TA 90 (Yay!!!...took quite a few gals of MA and a homemade aerator)
    CH 340 (Thank you rain water)
    CYA 30 (still disolving - added 3.5 lbs, 2.5 days ago
    Salt 3200
    Temp 65


    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!...thanks for everyones help....the water already seems nice and sparkly...can't wait to add borates

    You have been working!

    Just in case you haven't seen it, here's waterbears SWG tips:

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
