Hi all, I mean no offense by naming a religion in the subject line, but I don't know what else to call it. The 'pool' is 11' X11' and ~4' deep, entirely tiled. The pool is intended to be filled by rain water. The operator has requested bromine, and I'm not that 'good' with my bromine chemistry. We figure that the 'pool' holds ~ 3500 gal. The pool needs to be emptied every month and refilled (it's a difficult thing right now since we've only gotten ~ 1.5" of rain this month) They have a 'bubbler' filter (think fishtank filter), and I know nothing about them
Also, the pH is over 8.2, but I don't think too much higher, the TA is 60 and the CH is 80, the water temp is ~103 --- my 'watergram' tells me that the water is 'ballanced', but the levels are lower than 'the experts' say to keep the pool at, I don't want to tell them to add ~12 lbs calcium and 5 lbs of baking soda every month when they have to drain the pool and refill.
Does anyone have any practical knowledge of these pools? We are waiting til monday to add anything, because there may be some chems that aren't kosher. I am hoping that someone may be able to 'fill me in' on these type pools and what is acceptable to use with them.
Also, is having balanced water below the 'normal/ suggested' levels OK?
Thank- you anyone who can give some input!
