I've just discovered the world of TFP, bought a test kit and and trying to get in balance.
Data: SWG Aquarite in-ground plaster 2 years old 24,000 gallons; Taylor 2600 test kit
Temp:58 deg F; Green Algae present on walls; suspicion of black algae in crevasses;
Vitals: FC 3.2, PH 7.85, TA 110ppm, CH 230ppm, CYA 55
Target: FC 4, PH 7.6, TA 110ppm (Aquarite says 80 to 120), CH 300, CYA 80 (Aquarite says this is best)
Supplies Bleach 6%, Proteam PH down, Muratic Acid 32%, Aquachem Stabilizer, Aquachem Calcium Hardness increaser
Quest 1: I'm trying to determine the best sequence. I was thinking fix PH, then shock (while CYA is lower), then fix CH and finally CYA. If I'm right, should I just shoot of FC of 24, rather than 32?
Quest 2: The target gives me a SI of -.29. Is that okay? Should it be closer to zero? And if so, what would you change?
Quest 3: Would you look at Target and make any suggestions.
Thanks guys. Lew
