    Come down off slam

    Hey guys, successful slam, just coming back down to target fc of 5. I went ahead and ran full tests and I'd like to get some help on adjusting ta/ch if you think it's necessary.

    FCL 7
    CCL .5
    CYA 50
    Ph 7.6
    Ta 140
    Ch 150

    Thought?

    Also pictures below, thanks for all your help!

    Nice job, looks great! You can't adjust the CH without dumping water and you have a vinyl pool so you can pretty much disregard that one. No need to worry about it.

    As for the TA, adjustment will only be required if your pH rises quickly. In that case, just use MA to lower it and the TA will drop each time you add acid. Your pool will seek it's own TA balance as you adjust the pH.

    Time for a swim...if its warm enough!

    Everything looks good. You don't need to worry about the CH with Vinyl. TA is fine as well, no need to adjust unless you have problems keeping your pH balanced.

    OK great! Once you plug in all the values to the saturation wheel that came with my kit it says my water is in danger of becoming cloudy or developing scale which is why I asked.

    If it weren't for the dang wind we'd be set!

    Forget the wheel, use PoolMath.

    Your water has a near neutral CSI, so there is no chance of scaling or randomly going cloudy.
