    Finished self install have test results NOW WHAT??

    Salt 3010
    CYA 55
    FC. 0.5
    TA. 250
    PH. 7.2
    CH 270
    Water temp 63*

    Using the TF-100 with the lighted battery mixer and salt test stick want to balance the water before I bring to closure levels and close for the winter. Sad to sit on the deck knowing its finally done but y to cold to get in.

    So, in what order do I add/subtract items?

    My SCG is running at 60%

    You need more FC. So dump some bleach in, or crank up the SWG and get it to 3 or 4

    Lower TA some by aeration and acid. Directions are in pool school.

    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!

    CYA is a bit low for SWG ... although may not matter as much in the winter.
    Get the FC up immediately with bleach and then let the SWG maintain it.
    You are going to have to watch the pH as it will likely rise fast due to the SWG and the high TA ... you may eventually want to work on lowering the TA (see Pool School article).
