    test results advise

    Pool looks great and clear, here are my latest numbers,

    ph 7.6
    FC 8
    TA 70
    CH 280
    CYA 65
    Salt 3200
    Borax approx. 50
    temp 86

    Leave it alone or should I raise the CYA a little, I do have some liquid left over? Florida pool gets full Sun.

    Thanks all.

    I'd leave it alone. Maybe turn the SWG down a notch. No need to work it to death.

    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.

    Perhaps raise it but not much....do not exceed 80. Your call......I would leave it if it were my pool.

    How confidant are you on your test results?

    I would test it again in a week to see if it changes. If it repeats in a weeks time, you could bump it up. You are close to ideal, so there is no need to adjust it now.
