    Test Results... where to go now?


    I was able to get my pool in pretty good shape before going on vacation. It looks good, but I can see dirt on the floor of the pool, so we've been vacuuming. We're getting up all sorts of stuff! I just did a complete round of tests and was wondering if I could get some input on what I should do next. Thanks!

    FC 3.5
    CC .5
    TC 4.0
    pH It was higher than 6.8, but not at 7.2, so I'm guessing around 7.0
    T/A 130

    First thing is to bump that pH up a bit and while you're at it bring the FC up to 7ppm.

    Even though your numbers don't indicate that it's needed, since you're just back from being away for a while, I'd run an overnight chlorine drop test just to check for organics.
