    CC question

    Hi, I'm new to maintaining my pool. We are just getting back to normal after slamming the pool for mustard green algae. These are my numbers and I'm wondering if I need to do anything about the CC and if everything else looks good.

    FC- 7
    CC- 0.5
    Ph- 7.4
    TA- 80

    Pool is an inground, concrete with 10k gallon (including a spa that feeds into it).
    '96-'00 Pool, 10x25 (8,500? gal), IG concrete with 7.5ft round spa attached, Pentair Superflo 1.5hp pump, Hayward cartridge C1200 fliter, Test kit: Taylor k-2006.

    You CC is fine at .5 or less. Keep in mind you need to do the CC test immediately after the FC test. If you wait too long it will start turning pink again and can cause some confusion.

    All your other number look to me.

    It is common for pools to cycle between 0 and .5 or so CC just based on blown in dust, etc.
