    FC and solar blanket

    What would you say is the upper limit for FC to leave the solar blanket on a pool? Another words, if I get my FC up to 6 and leave the cover on am I safe? How about 8 or 10? I would think nothing over 10 would be good but what do you think? CYA is 0.

    With CYA at 0, FC of 6+ is really high and I would not use the solar cover. As long as you are below shock value, per the FC/cya ratio chart, you can use your blanket.

    Is this an indoor pool? You should have at least 20-30ppm of CYA in your pool.

    Outdoor pool. I just received 12 lbs of cya yesterday. I'm shooting for a cya of 40 when I add it.
