    Test results - anything to be concerned about?

    Hello, I'm hoping for some feedback on my results this morning.

    pH: 7.6
    FC: 7ppm
    TA: 100
    CYA is currently 40 although I have a sock in the skimmer now.
    Calcium Hardness: dropped 31 drops using test kit and solution was still not very blue so ppm is probably 1000+. Water is clear.
    Salt Level: 3500 ppm according to Hayward Aquapod reading

    Should I be concerned about the hardness or salt levels? Hayward recommends salt range at 2700-3400.

    Thanks all.

    Please post some more info about the surface, dimensions, and gallonage of your pool...and which test kit are you using?

    You need to get that CH down.

    That CH number seems doubtful.

    Questions: Did you forget and possibly use the 25 ml sample size but use the 10 ml multiplier? Have you been chlorinating with Cal-hypo powdered shock? Was there anything done to the pool like a no-drain acid wash that could account for CH levels being that high? If that number is correct, the walls and floor of that pool must feel like sandpaper. Or they will soon.

    they did a no-drain acid wash in late May when the NPT StoneScapes finish was done. The walls and floor feel fine right now. I'll retest to be sure I did it right. Thanks for the feedback.
