    What FC level should I have now that my water is < 60f?

    Now that it has cooled off, my pool is around 60f and probably won't warm up beyond that. Should I still keep the same FC level as I was when using it in the summer, or can i back it off somewhat? Currently my CYA is 30, so I target FC at 4.

    I'd just close. That's what I do when my water hits 60.

    Ya except I hate the look of the pool cover compared to a nice pool (even if I'm not swimming in it)...

    I plan on closing probably in about three weeks.

    Just keep targeting 4ppm, you'll just find having to add less FC over the next few weeks, while keeping algae at bay along with the colder temps
