    SteveNbr's first official numbers

    Ok... 2.5 weeks after plaster, here's my numbers:

    FC 3
    CC 0
    TC 3
    pH 7.2
    T/A 80
    CH 230
    CYA 25 (ish)
    Temp 85 F

    Not salt yet, but probably will be next week or so.

    I've been using muratic acid to control the ph.

    I've been using bleach to chlorinate.

    Plenty of areation to be had and sun to be tolerated.

    Prior to these, I had added about 5 lbs of cya, the last of it being 5 days ago. So I've just put a little less than a pound in some hose in the skimmer, to help bring this up.

    What's the goal on FC?

    Any comments on any of the other digits?

    Thanks!

    Check Jason's calculator for suggested FC with an SWG. little chart fills in at the bottom as you enter your CYA.
    pH needs to come up to 7.6
    See this thread... read waterbear's post, ignore mine!!

    "Shock" is a process, not a product!
