    Wink Thank you, TFP!

    Our pool is less than a year old and we just had it opened two days ago. I followed the TFP method since it was installed last summer and never had the slightest algae problem. Of course I did my own chemical balancing before the pool company closed it last October, and I just tested the water for the first time since then. Here are the results:

    FC: 3.5
    CC: 0.5
    pH: 7.5
    TA: 90
    CH: 225
    CYA: 55
    CSI: -0.13

    I'm thrilled! All I have to do is add some chlorine to get that CC down to zero the the FC up to about 4 and I'm golden. I plan on swimming tomorrow!

    Well done you!!

    I bet a little UV from the sun will help you dissipate that 0.5 CC since its been covered all this time.
