    First test results of the year

    FC 12
    CC 0
    TC 12
    pH 7.2
    TA 50
    CYA 40

    All in all I am pretty satisfied with the winterizing last year. I had a lot of trouble during opening last year, but this year I think I started early enough to (hopefully) keep it under control. The water was clear when the cover came off but went cloudy after the start of shocking. It is a bit better today but I notice I did fall below the shock level of 16 so I am about to get that back up now.

    Should I be concerned with any of those numbers, particularly pH and TA?

    pH and TA are a bit low but I don't think I would make any adjustments for a week or so. The natural tendency is for pH to come up a bit. If TA stays low for another week, I would bring it to 80 ppm.

    Your others numbers are on the money....nice work
