    Yes, you are generally doing alright. However the CC level of 1 is a little worrisome. It is probably just a side effect of the FC level being a little low, but it could be a sign of something worse. I suggest you add a little extra chlorine manually, to bring it up to 5 or 6, and if CC isn't down to 0.5 or lower by tomorrow you will need to shock the pool.

    With CYA at 80, you want to keep the FC level at 4 or higher at all times. You may need to turn up the percentage more to active that, or you might have a low level algae problem. If things aren't going better by tomorrow it would be a good idea to do an overnight FC loss test.

    Thank You
    Last week it was at 6 so i hope that i turned it down to much ,i went from 50% to 35%
    and the rain water did not help,it had been staying steady all year ,my first problem with it ,seems like it was my fault but
    i will recheck in the morning,live and learn,i will go back to 50% also
