OK - just finished up with full set of test results after our shocking process has been complete now for the past week. We have what appear to be iron stains (which showed up the 2nd day water was in...but was the least of our worries after our water turned green!)...so wondering how to proceed with balancing water knowing we are going to be doing some spot treatments to our stairs, ladder, cozy cove and returns with Natural Chemistry Stain Free.
CYA: > 20
1. Should we continue to let our FC go down if we will be using Stain Free or should we maintain our level a bit higher if we will be doing the spot treatments?
2. Does pH need to be raised a bit?
3. Not sure how to read CH since the range is so wide on recommended levels
4. Need to add more CYA since we have not added in about 1.5 weeks.
As always, thanks for the help in advance!!
