It seems the rain will never stop! We got our concrete decking poured the day before TS Bill hit - (thank goodness!) It has to stop raining long enough to do the PebbleTec - but we are close! Still have a lot of odds and ends - Firepit, Spraydeck, final electrical, propane tank (they cxl delivery yesterday thanks to the Tropical Storm), drainage for yard, grading, but we are so close!!!
I am thinking PT next week - but it all depends on this rain. Rain. Rain. Rain. Sick of it!
Kim - that is EASY! I post my numbers on the proper forum. Duh.

Here are my initial thoughts - according to the stuff I have seen on here:
FC = .5 (should be around 4 with a low CYA - must raise CYA)
PH = 7.5 (This one is ok!)
TA = 170 (Need to lower to between 60-120)
CH = 175 (Should be 220-230)
CYA = 0 (need to raise CYA 30-50 - since I am starting off with pucks - guess that won't be hard)
Now - how I do all this? I haven't gotten that far yet! Must read more!
I've actually printed everything off and read it a couple of times, but until I actually can use it, I don't think my brain is going to process it. Also, I have to start off going by my PB guidelines for startup. Not sure how long I'll have to do that. But I don't want any issues with warranties.
I stopped by and shared my experience - not sure it was helpful!

Too funny not to share. So the Propane Tank guy got here and about 10 minutes later he knocks on my door and says mam, I am sorry, but I have to run to the store. I will be back in a few minutes. (having had so many crews in my backyard - I thought maybe he needed to use the restroom) so I asked him if there was anything I could help with. He said that he had to go buy some Mosquito Repellant - that he can't stand out there without being eaten alive! LOL - so I proceeded to spray him down with Off. It was so funny though - it has rained pretty much daily for 45 days - the mosquitoes here are getting bigger and angrier!
I have seen these in the store - but wasn't sure if they work! I am going to get one this weekend!!!!! I need something on my back patio - they like to congregate there and wait for unsuspecting victims to walk out the door.
Here is a picture of my new Propane Tank We will soon build a 4' privacy fence all the way in front of the tank - from our current privacy fence (along the concrete) - over to our property line. Our HOA requires the tank be hidden from view and we have been wanting to fence in the rest of our property - but it will have to wait a while . . . $$$
