First Test Results and other Questions


Aug 23, 2019
Lafayette, Louisiana
So got my good kit and was able to test today: FC 2 CC 0 PH 7.2 TA 90 CH 200 CYA 0
The pool was replastered in September so the PH rises about .2-.8 per day....I’ve dumped about 2 gals of muriatic acid this week.

So I know I need to get my CYA up, any other suggestions?

I also just replaced my spider gasket in the multi port valve. It was leaking and sucking air through the waste line. It doesn’t leak anymore but when I turn the pump off it still sucks air. Is this normal?
Lastly does this plaster look right to y’all? Thanks!C44391D6-79EB-4794-8145-73BFBDDF5061.jpeg

try and increase your fc and cya slowly
if you increase your cya too fast your fc level will be too low
try to keep your ph higher, the lower you drop it the faster it will raise
allow it to reach 7.8 to 8.0 and then lower to 7.6 or 7.8
