    CYA <20(filled till top of view tube and became a bit blurry at the top) should I add a 4lb bag of cya and call it a day? I have ran this test twice in consecutive days and nothing changed.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I would use PoolMath (did you find it up near the top of the page?) and calculate enough CYA to get to 40 ppm. Then, you can just assume it's in there. If you dose carefully, that'll work.

    TA is a bit high but if you leave it alone, it will slowly come down.

    Everything else you post looks very good. Did you have a question?
