    How are my numbers now?

    I think I got it under control:


    PH = 7.2

    FC = 8

    CC = 0

    TA = 100

    CYA = 40

    Thanks all for the help!

    What's the CH?

    While scale is unlikely with your current pH, it's good to know.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    With the low pH and the low CH, you are approaching possible issues to your plaster.

    Would recommend bumping up the CH to around 300ppm.

    Check out the CSI (bottom of poolcalculator to see what I am talking about).

    Got it - will add Calcium Chloride to the pool. Will stop by the pool store and pick some up.

    Thanks for the help!
