    first tim eswimmers..are numbers okay???

    My nieces and nephew will be the first swimmers in my new pool tomorrow and I want to make sure everything looks good enough for that. Here are the numbers this morning -

    FC 18
    CC 0
    TC 18
    pH 7.2
    TA 70
    CYA 90

    A couple of weeks ago I added a couple of pounds of borax to raise the pH to 7.6. Should I do that again?? Since this will be the first time I have swimmers in my pool is there anything special I need to do???

    Thanks for all your help!

    Leave your pH alone. The SWG will tend to make it rise anyway.

    If you've been chlorinating solely with the SWG, turn it down a notch. 8-10ppm of FC is enough.

    Happy swimming!!

    Thanks Dave! Yes, I am chlorinating with the SWG but have had in low since the beginning. The CL is finally starting to come down from a high of 29 from the PB's original brilliant application of chemicals!

    I may just have to get in today first!

    You want to maintain a 3-5 ppm FC level with the SWG
