Thread: Just got my test kit

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Just got my test kit

    SWG just turned on 5 days now

    FC 5
    CC 0.5
    pH 7.8 yeah needs some acid
    TA 170
    CH 220
    CYA 90

    I know my FC is on the low side for my CYA according to Ben's chart
    The other thing I need to add is my pool is solar heated to about 92F
    Right now I have the SWG at 80%
    Given this is all new to me I'm open to suggestions and/or things to watch

    Ben's chart doesn't apply to SWCG pools. You can get by with your FC a little lower than that.

    First and foremost, how does your water look? If it's clear and sparkling (sounds like it) you are good to go with just a little fine tuning.

    You will most likely need some muriatic acid to keep your pH in the 7.2 - 7.6 range........SWG's tend to raise pH.

    Once you lower your pH a little, recheck your Alk. If it's still above 120, I would suggest bringing it down into the 80 - 120 range.

    CYA is at the top end but OK. Don't add any more or use any pucks.

    Happy swimming!!
