    Thoughts on my numbers???

    So my pool is crystal clear. Here are my numbers:
    FC-3.6
    CC-0
    pH- 8.0 (just added about 10oz. Acid)
    TA-100
    CH-190
    CYA- 40

    Sat index-0.4

    Other than adding the acid, I don't think there is anything to mess with. I did increase SWG to 60% to generate more Cl.

    Any thoughts?

    For your SWG pool, your CYA should be more in the 70-80 range to protect your valuable FC produced. And you already noted, FC is a bit low as noted on the Pool School - Chlorine / CYA Chart. Raising that CYA should help retain that FC in the future. You can also allow your TA to come down a little more over time as you add acid. The lower TA will help you keep pH down as well. Hope that helps.

    Agree, CYA up to 80 and TA down to 60 or so to reduce PH rise. Otherwise, looking good. Pool School - Lower Total Alkalinity

    Also, with a FC result of 3.6, it looks like you are using a 25ml sample. You can use a 10 sample for FC/CC and then multiply the drops by 0.5. It will use less reagents.

    That is Zoey. She will be 12 this year. She is my ole lady as we call her. She partially tore her acl 2 years ago, since she was 10, we elected not to do surgery and see if it would re stabilize enough for her to get around. We lucked out and it did. She just cannot jump. So she has a little bit of a hard time getting in and out. But she does swim. My other girl, is Bella, she is not in this pic and she is going on 7 and she will not stay out of pool!

    Re: Thoughts on my numbers???

    just ran through one cycle: dropped pH to 7.0 using 31.45% acid from Home Depot. Used my sheen decents to aerate to bring pH back to 7.8 and TA is now down to 80!!!!! Excellent! This website is a total godsend! My Taylor K-2006 is amazing. If you read my posts during my build, my previous home had a pool, it was build in the early 90's and was well maintained when i took over. However, I knew nothing about pool care. I did not have a lot of problems, however when I did, i relied on the pool store and it cost me a lot of money. I am so excited to have found this site and forum!!!!! Thanks to everyone for the solid advise!
