    Newbie Tests

    If I did this right this is what I have:

    CYA 70
    FC 11.50 ppm 23 drops x 0.5
    CC 1.00 2 drops x 0.5
    TA 180 18 drops x 10
    PH 7.5

    Pool Calculator says add 1 quart 1 cup 1 oz of MAcid. Correct? Comments welcomed. I am leaving for a week, I leave my pump running 24/7, use autofill, well water, don't want a disaster when I come home and using the T-100. And it rained all day. Need assurance.

    Adjusting the pH is not needed.

    If no-one is adding FC while you are gone, odds are you will need to go through the shock process when you get back.

    Actually since your CC is 1, you may need to shock already.

    Best bet is to cover the pool and put some pucks in it, but you CYA is already as bit high.
