So the family swam the first time this weekend in the pool, it was pretty cold at 72 degrees. Right now my CYA is 70, the pH is 7.4 and the FC is 8.6. It was interesting, the next day I could see the CC was .5 but the day after that it went back down to 0 while the FC held at 8.6. My SWG is only set at 15%, should I try to lower it some more or when I use the pool more the FC will be used up faster? I am running my 1.5hp 2 speed pump all the time on low speed.
Now that I am more or less at steady state, what do I do? Test pH and FC every few days? What should I watch out for? I have a clear solar cover on all the time. The water is crystal clear.
