    how do these results look?

    Here are results from today. Just wondering if I need to adjust anything. water is clear.
    FC 3
    pH 7.8
    TA 150
    CH 350
    CYA 50

    I have been doing the BBB method all summer with only one hiccup. I am so thankful I found this sight.
    Thanks for all the help here.
    25,000 gal, sand, IG, gunite with attached spa and waterfall

    Your FC is a little low, I would target 8 at your addition, never drop below 4, with a CYA of 50. As long as your pH isn't drifting, I wouldn't worry about TA of 150, but you can lower it if it is a problem.

    How does your water look?

    RobbieH has you covered!

    I would lower your ph down to 7.2, this will also lower your TA a little. When it comes back up to 7.8, lower it to 7.2 again (as before your TA will lower a little more).

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    I would agree with lowering TA and getting chlorine up a little. With you waterfall, it should be easy to aerate pH back up when needed.
