    Got my New test kit! Heres my results.

    Hey guys. Got my new Taylor test kit today. How are my results looking?

    FC 1.4
    CC 0.2
    PH 7.8
    TA 100
    CH 290
    CYA 30

    Its a 1500 gallon plaster pool with a Polaris SWCG. I know I need to bring the Chlorine up and the PH down a bit. Any other advice? Thanks.

    Looking good. FC up, PH down, just as you said, and all will be perfect.

    how about the CYA - doesn't he need to double that? I'm not sure about Polaris SWG requirements.

    Thanks for the quick replies everyone. Yeah I'm not sure about the CYA. The pool has been filled for almost 4 weeks now, and between me and the start up guy, I think about 4 lbs. have been put in. I have read (maybe somewhere her) that you need to have higher CYA with a salt water chlorine pool.Not sure though.This is my first pool so I'm still learning.

    Most SWCG manufacturers do recommend higher levels of CYA. For example, the manufacturer of mine recommended a CYA level between 70 and 80. This info should be in the manual for the unit, or on the manufacturer's website.

    Polaris doesn't recommend a specific CYA level, they just say "stabilizer (cyanuric acid) at levels appropriate for the regional climate". Nothing will go wrong at 30, but the cell will last longer at higher CYA levels, say 60-80.
