    New to the forum. SWG pool. Free Chlorine at 8.5.

    Hello all-

    This weekend, I decided to start taking care of the pool myself. First order of business was to clean my Hayward Turbo Cell. Bam. Done. Chlorine is getting produced. I had put it on SuperChlorinate for 24 hours after cleaning on Saturday and then switched it back to Auto.

    My FC levels have been rising ever since.

    Saturday 3.0
    Sunday PM 6.2
    Monday AM 8.5

    I'm not sure what my next step should be. Turning off the SWG until I get to a good place?

    Full test results:
    FC: 8.5
    CC: 0.@
    PH: 7.5
    TA: 90
    Hardness: 180
    CYA: 0 (i just put in 2 sock fulls of Stabilizer last night in the skimmer)

    Turn down your percentage until you find the correct one that keeps FC constant.

    Ok. I will. I thought that in Auto mode it took care of itself. I'll turn it to 10% and see what happens. Thanks!
