Well, usually 82+, lol, but for PH reasons, she can "hop" in, but will probably jump right back out! lolOhhh I dumped it. Let me go do it again. One second.
It’s like 75 degrees last time I checked the temp. I don’t know what is considered swim able but my daughter is so excited I don’t think she would care. LOL
Go swim and enjoy the (probably frigid) POOL! heeheeAm I supposed to check TA? I went by the seasonal pool instructions here and so far have tested CYA, pH, and chlorine. Should I do the rest? Or swim for awhile today and check it again this evening?
Yes you can use Borax, remember to keep a record how how much was addedYou mean more Borax? I can handle that. Haha.
Is there a recommended scale to weigh the dry chemicals? I just have this goofy kitchen scale. There’s gotta be a better way.
Higher PH is okay for vinyl, but if it doesn't start to come down, you can dose partial doses of muriatic acid as needed. Definitely try to use half what is recommended and give it time to mix in. I think borates can only be removed by draining. That is why I prefer washing soda, it might raise both PH & TA, but it can be managed without extra tests (simply a personal preference)Put the info into the pool math app...pH and TA. I weighed out the amount the app said to add. I added it. Now I think it’s overshot. This test was about an hour after adding it.
Maintain your FC for your CYA/40 using this FC/CYA Chart. Enjoy your pool! The SLAM Process is only needed if the pool is cloudy (or green) or not holding chlorine otherwiseI didn’t get overexcited to correct the pH and it’s more like 7.6 today. My chlorine dropped to 0.5 though. I put that number in with the goal of 5 and put in that much chlorine, hoping to swim in a little while. Should I retest later tonight and slam it? I read if it gets lower than 3 to do the slam?
