Sure. But only after consulting the ‘affects of adding’ section of the poolmath app. There are times it lines up with what you need. There are also times that it creates new problems.Thank you. At any point could I use the 45 lbs of baking Soda that the pool store enticed me into buying? Can’t it be used to raise TA & PH?
Yes. Ultimately you’ll want to be 30, maybe even 40 once the Louisiana sun gets blazing, but for now 20 will protect the FC long enough that it can do its thing. At 0 CYA right now the UV/sun can burn off your added FC in 30 minutes or less. Going right to 40 will require a lot more chlorine added to have the same sanitizing ability with more of the chlorine buffered by the higher CYA. So you want some for now to make it easier to SLaM.Also, am I going to add enough stabilizer to hit a CYA reading of 20? Pool math tells me that’s 5 lbs
