    Alright guys I'm confused by the pool calc. need advise

    Alright guys I tested my water today, plugged the numbers into the calc and then got confused.

    FC=25
    CC=0
    TC=25
    pH=7.2
    T/A=30
    CYA=120

    Any suggestions?
    A couple of nights ago I dropped my bag of baking soda into the pool. The next morning the pool turned into a nice shade of pale green.

    This is really a side issue, but raise TA to at least 60, higher if using trichlor tablets, very soon.

    Your CYA is way too high. You are going to need to bring that down. The only practical way to lower CYA is to replace water.
