    Just making sure I am perfect

    I finally got everything all balanced (I think) and I wanted to publish what I have JUST to make sure I am not missing anything.

    FC - 5
    CC - 0
    pH - 7.5
    T.A - 90
    CH - 100 (have no calcium based fillers in fiberglass)
    CYA - 40

    My only gut is perhaps I should get the pH up a little, but I am waiting till the somewhat newly added last bit of CYA dissolves, etc.

    Any other thoughts - fire away!

    Oh, water is crystal clear !!

    Doesn't get much better than that. Leave your pH alone....it's just fine.

    With 40 CYA, keep FC between 3 and 7, and never below 3. If you are at 5FC now, you may be too low later. I suggest you dose up to about 7 each evening and see where you end up.

    Your pH looks absolutely perfect and I'd leave it alone.

    We do recommend a higher CH of 220 to 320 for FG pools to help prevent cobalt spotting.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Yeah, I've dropping 1.5PPM of FC while at 30 CYA, so thinking at 40 I still should be good....will test a bit to see if I get that consistency still.

    As for the CH, I am a little confused on the CH level...meaning look at this thread where I was told not to worry about it. Now I am not trying to pit one against the other, just trying to understand.

    Well, I think my wife would agree with you
