I think things are going well with the new 26k gallon IG maui gem quartz pool.....but do have a question about a few things.
first, here are my numbers...
Chlorine: 1.0-1.5 (using the cheapie pentair test kit)
So it is a SWG pool...but since it is 12 days old i don't have Salt in yet (16 days away still).
the pool frog (Cl bacpac) and a (~daily) 96oz bleach have been the source of chlorine.
added 5lbs of stabilizer ~ 1 week ago but backwashed after 2 days so think i lost a lot of it.
brought TA up ~1 week ago from 50 to 80. it has held steady since.
was instructed by local chemical company to also add Calcium Chloride ~ 1 week ago when CH was 120...so brought that up to ~200 (with ~14 lbs Ca) and it has naturally risen to 260ish.
So.....in order to keep the pH at 7.2 i've had to add ~1/2 gallon of MA every other day. it creeps to 7.4-7.5 and i knock it back down. Seem about right for this "new" of a pool?
I've been sweeping 2x/day for the first 10 days and daily since. residue was present for first 7-8 days and is basically non existant now.
water is clear and approx 80 degrees.
filter runs from 6am to 10pm.
Everything sound ok? Anything else i should be doing? Anything I shouldnt be doing?
I really want to make sure i do this right!!!
thanks so much.
