    First Test #'s of the Year

    This is the start of my second season with bbb. Last year was a great success and this year is starting out well. I opened to a clear pool. I've had the pump running all day after I added some chlorine this morning. Got home and here are the test results.

    FC - 6
    CC - 0
    TA - 80
    ph - 7.5
    CYA - 10

    My plan is to get some CYA in there to get it up to around 40 then maintain FC and test often. Sound right?

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Boo Card, Go CATS! haha!

    I'm just outside of Prestonsburg, but I work in Pikeville. It's good to see another KY forumite. How long did you live in KY? What pulled you from the area, work?
