Thanks for quick feedback! Yeah the filter is out far enough to get off with no issues. The two lines are my attempt to reduce pressure loss... really no other purpose. Yeah i read that about those valves. In a year or two i'll redo it with the correct valve and sweeps and eliminate one of those lines.
Stop. No need to do that.I'm heading to the pool store when they open
Thanks for the quick replay! I'll pick some up from wallmart. I think they have it there. The plaster is not traditional, its a roll on by sider-crete. No chlorine for first 3 days and no brushing or salt additions for 14 days, no calcium chloride for 5 days. Run filter pump constant for first 5 days.Stop. No need to do that.
Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes, Ace Hardware should have what you need.
You need stabilizer (CYA), acid (31.45% or 14.5% muriatic acid, and liquid chlorine).
Are you following a plaster start up process?
Yes, Keep lowering PH to 7.4-7.6. After adding MA, let it circulate for 30 mins then recheck.So far I've used a little over a half gallon of 14.5 % MA and the pH is still high (TA down to 60). I plan to keep adding acid until the pH comes down, but is that the right move?
