    Sorry, I couldn't resist. But you know, here at TFP we strongly encourage pool owners taking 100% control of their pool by testing their own water with a TF-100 or Taylor K-2006. It's the only way to guarantee 100% ownership. It's fast, easy, and you won't waste time on "shocks" and products that drain your pocketbook. Right now you have an imbalance of FC and CYA which can inevitably lead to algae. The right test kit will resolve that problem. Please see the TF-100 link below in my sig. Great to have you with us.

    Is CA supposed to be CYA 10? If you have been chlorinating with pucks and shocking with dichlor it is very unlikely that CYA is 10. Add your state to your location in your profile so it shows up over there <---- and we will be able to make a recommendation on CYA. Climate is very important.
