    Definitely need to get stabilizer in there right away. Start with a CYA target of 30 ppm for now. Do you have algae or cloudiness? If yes, then also increase FC to 12 and start your SLAM. If not, then you can allow the FC to drop a little to between 4-6. Then pH can also be allowed to rise with aeration or increase with borax to about 7.6.

    Welcome to TFP and congrats on the test kit

    Those numbers look great but you need to get some CYA in there (CYA of 30 recommended) (I take it this is a new fill), the HTH brand 100% granules from walmart work great, use poolmath to know exactly how much to stuff in a sock and put in the pool in front of a return.. you can need the sock as much as you want, once all CYA is dissolved test 24 hours later.

    Your TA is a little high but as you drop your PH using MA your TA will also go down

    No problem check my signature below, and I am sure your not the first person who would willingly donate CYA

    Not a new fill did the test as directed with kit and could see the black dot on bottom of test tube until I was out of water.

    99tj, if you could see the black dot with he tube filled all the way to the top, that means your CYA is indeed extremely low if now zero. So, to increase CYA via granular stabilizer, place the required amount (for CYA of 30) as calculated by the Poolmath calculator into a white sock and suspend it near a return jet or in the skimmer. Best not to allow undissolved granules to rest directly against the pool surface. Squeeze the sock periodically to help it dissipate. Once dissolved, consider your CYA adjusted to that programmed (target) level, although the test readings may take anywhere from 24 hours to a few days to fully register. Confirm CYA in about one week before adding any more stabilizer/conditioner.

    Once it's dissolved, consider it at 30. That will help protect your FC tremendously.
