I'm a new pool person and pretty much everything I know (about operating a pool) I've learned here. For the most part things are fine, but I have a couple of questions for someone.
First some numbers.
1. I'm using a SWCG and loving it. I run it at night, morning test is about 5.0 but then is nearly zero by late afternoon and time to start the SWCG up. Should I be running it some during the daytime?
2. PH is high but the water is very nice and clear and not irritating at all.
3. TA is high, but is it? I've read a couple differing recommendations. 60-80 on the pool calc. and 120-180 elsewhere.
4. CYA? I've seen 40 to 60 and 70 to 80 on pool calc.
So, lower PH and TA with muriatic acid and then aerate? or what? And if acid and aerate, what is an easy way to aerate?
You guys are great.
