    So far so good!

    This is my first summer with a pool. Glad I found this site. Water has been fantastic all summer. Here are my latest #s:

    FC: 2
    CC: 0
    PH: 7.5
    TA: 70
    CH 260
    CYA 40

    FC is low, but trying to keep it maintained with tabs and the feeder just cant keep up. Want to raise my CYA to 50. I am supplementing with bleach.

    The CYA seems to be stable even though I have been using tabs to try and get it up. I have used 8 tabs and it's gone from 45 to 40. Maybe splash out and backwash are keeping it in check, but it does not seem that there would be that much loss of water

    I plumbed a Stenner pump this weekend and will be dialing it in.

    I would trust the calculated CYA based on what it was plus what you added.

    Don't make the adjustments too quickly on your pump. I give it a day per adjustment just to make sure it stabilizes.
