    Am I just lucky?

    On March 24th my FC was 6.5 and my CC showed just a tinge of pink (0.0 to 0.5 range) and CYA = 30

    This was my first hint of CC since I started taking care of my pool so I immediately went into shock mode and added a gallon of 10%.

    The next day I measured FC = 15.5 (definitely in shock mode).

    Today (16 days later) my FC has only come down to 12.

    I have a solar cover on, so I suppose loss to sunlight is minimized, but I expected there would be more demand.

    Nope, when my solar cover is on and the pool is not used my FC demand is virtually nil.
    You don't need to shock if the CC is .5 or less. Only if it's higher than .5.... (for future reference, LOL)
