    With a SWG you want to raise CYA a little. Then you can also lower the % on the SWG and try to keep FC between 3 & 5. You know about the pH.

    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!

    New plaster will demand acid.

    I don't quite understand 8.1-4? but keep you ph down below 7.8.

    Since you have a swg, I would move your cya up 70 ppm. See: http://www.troublefreepool.com/pool-...ater_generator

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.

    Thanks guys, I can't figure out the ph using blue test kit. Some where between 8.1 and 8.4 I add acid every week. Pool store says .......8.04

    You need to get your pH down sooner rather than later. Regardless of how much acid it takes, you need to be in the 7's for pH....NEVER at 8.0 or above.
