    The Numbers Are IN!

    Hello friends,

    been adding CYA over the last week. had a nasty storm blow through on Monday night so clean up was a mess. My pool is flanked by 3 huge oak trees. anyway, so I added 2.5 gallons of 12% CL yesterday to go from greenish to clear (plus I had not added any in a couple days, and was in the process of increasing my CYA). So, all the CYA is in now, the pool has been cleaned and vacuumed, and here are the results as of tonight:

    FC: 10.5
    CC: .5
    TC: 11
    pH: 7.2
    T/A: 130
    CYA: 40
    Temp: 66

    whatdoyathink? I think I should bring the pH up just a bit.

    Yes, bumping up the PH a little is a good idea, but no rush.

    Hey, Pez,

    The only thing you need is a little more temperature in that pool and you're ready to swim!!

    The pH is just fine. If it drifts one way or another, it'll probably be slowly upwards so I think I'd leave it just as it is.

    Very, very nice work on your chemistry. If we had a classroom, you'd get moved to the front row!!

    my crazy kids were in it for about an hour today! my 11 year old daughter has learned how to vacuum the pool!

    one less chore for me!
