    First reliable test

    I messed up my first test I did back on the 19th, it was getting dark and the results were not right. But the ph test was easy and it was over 8 and I hadn't put any cya into the pool so it was 0. Anyway I added stabilizer/conditioner and dry acid to get the ph down. I took a test tonight and took my time, here are the results.
    FC 8
    CC .5
    TC 8.5
    ph 7.2
    T/A 110
    CH 270
    CYA 40
    The water is crystal clear and feels smooth when swimming, going by the test what is my next step?

    Enjoy!

    Swim some more.

    TA will probably come down a little and pH will rise a little with aeration, ie swimming and splashing

    Chlorine will come down naturally so you'll need to replenish that in a day or so.

    What about the cya Richard, did I test to early or maybe I didn't add enough to the pool?

    See how it works out 1st. The Intex SWG seems to be able to maintain FC just fine at slightly lower CYA levels. If you find your FC dropping day after day, you can increase it to 60-70 in a few days.

    I'll let it go for awhile and see how the levels change, thanks guys.

    I missed the SWG part. Oops. Fortunately, dman already got it covered.
