    First test numbers of the year

    I took a test today heres my numbers. Cover is still on. Won't be opening until the seed pods are off the maple tree.

    Water is clear

    Water temp 54
    FC - 6
    CC - 0
    PH - 7.5
    TA - 70
    CH - 220
    CYA - 30-35

    I'm thinking everthing looks pretty good. Should I bumb the TA up or just leave it alone?

    Thanks in advance Jeff

    Well, ideally we like the water to circulate for several hours before first test because sometimes the numbers change...

    If it really ends up at 70 - I'd only worry about it if you see swings in the PH.

    Did you allow the sample to come to room temp before you tested CYA?
