    CC level at 65????

    Ok, I thought I had this figured out but i'm not sure.

    Testing this morning..

    CL - 5
    PH - 7.0
    TA - 150
    CYA - 30
    CAL - 250
    CC - 65 (13 drops to change the color) x 0.5 = 65?

    I added abt 32 oz of stabilizer two days ago when the level was at 20. It has came up to 30. That CC level tells me to shock. Is that correct?

    All answers appreciated....truly...truly....truly

    is it possible you grabbed the wrong bottle for the CC test?

    You divide 13 by two. But still, I'd double check the bottles.

    You forgot a decimal between the two. I think you mean 6.5. I won't tell you to shock until you re-run, make sure you have the right results. Did you get thirteen drops on the first or second part of the test? How many on the first part?

    Ok 14 drops of the R0871, 5 drops of R0003....it is clear. That means I have no CC correct?

    Yep, 7.0 PPM FC 0.0 CC. Excellent! Your pH needs to come up a little, say to 7.5, but your FC/CC is nice.

    Doing the happy dance!

    Am I correct that Borax will raise the PH without raising the TA?

    Yup- use the pool calculator to determine how much but its prudent to use less than suggested and retest. You can add more if needed but you don't want to overshoot if you can avoid it.
    Sometimes folks aren't positive of how many gallons their pool actually holds so this practice of under-dosing at first helps you determine how accurate your volume is as well as avoiding any testing variables that might cause you to over treat by accident.
