I’m new to the TFP web site and the BBB method, but I’ve been spending some time reading the Pool School and would like an opinion on my best course of action. The water in our pool looks crystal clear but the chlorine demand has been very high and I have not been able to get the FC level in range.
Test results from the pool store are: FC .1, TC 2.1, CC 2, pH 7.4, Hardness 180, Alk. 73 adjusted, CYA 90, TDS 1530, Phosphates 2500, Nitrates 80. After getting the results I’m concerned about the Phosphates, Nitrates and the CYA. I now know the high CYA is a result from using Dichlor to shock and Trichlore pucks to sanitize.
Question: With our Phosphates, Nitrates and CYA levels being so high would our best course of action be a partial water replacement? Also we have a Nature 2 vessel, but I’ve not installed a new cartridge this season. If I were to adopt the BBB method should the Nature 2 be abandoned? Thanks much, gar
