I've never owned/cared for a pool. Just trying to get a little more understanding.
I understand the math involved in the FC/CYA ratio chart.
But has anyone ever experimented with reducing the FC at a constant CYA to find the break over point of when CCs will start to form?
For instance, according to the chart, if I were to maintain a CYA of 30, my minimum FC would be 2. Does that mean I'll start to see CCs at two, or does that mean CCs shouldn't be present, if everything else is balanced?
Is my pool safe, as long as the CCs don't go over .5? Should I not allow anyone to swim in a pool with the CCs over .5?
Last question (for now), does the smell start at .5, or is it much higher? Basically, if I can smell chlorine, should I be swimming in that pool?
