Thread: Readings after algae battle!

    Readings after algae battle!

    I returned from a cruise in the bahamas to 80+ degree weather in NW Ohio. Wasn't much of a shocker that my pool was green, so I filled it up, opened up the pool and started my battle. This is by far the longest battle I've had with algae. Well, I've only had three in three years, so I think I'm doin' ok. The other two were my fault, this one I'll blame on global warming. It's been a full seven days since I started, 12 gallons of bleach, and now the water is crystal clear! I can't say it's sparkly until I get it vacuum'd out though.

    Readings just minutes ago:

    FC: 10
    CC: .5
    PH: 7.2
    TA: 100
    CYA: 60
    CH: 60
    Temp: A blistering 60f!

    Just wanted to check everything's going ok.

    The FC is coming down from the battle.
    The PH is going up, while the TA should come down a tad.
    CYA is a little bit high, but it'll go down some with splashout and the neverending refill.
    I usually only check CH a couple times a year and it's usually right around 60.

    CSI comes out to -1.07, but I should be ok since I'm vinyl. Right?

    All looks for the most part ok?

    Just double checking... Thanks!
