    Need advice on chemical balance

    Just got my 100 test kit and started adjusting chemical based on Pool School - Recommended Levels accordingly. I just did another testing and here are the results:

    FC 5.5
    CC 0
    TC 5.5
    PH 7.3
    TA 90
    CYA 46

    These seem like good number to me. (first summer owning the pool) Anything I should adjust? Once the balance is good, what are the next steps? testing PH/FC daily and test everything else weekly? I run the pump 3-6 hours a day and clear debris every morning.

    Thanks in advance!

    Those are some sweet looking numbers, great job

    CYA, just use 50 and target your FC at 6, thats is the only thing that I see

    The water look clear. There are some dust at the bottom of the pool and I am waiting for a new skinner adapter from Amazon to clean that up. Thanks all
