    Get some CYA in there (what is low anyways?) to protect your chlorine from the sun.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    My CYA is 10 maybe?? lol The dot was seen with the water at the top of the test tube. So yes I added some stabilizer. My tarp is a tad too small for the pool which allowed the leaves to get under and trying to close while the leaves are falling!. : ) Betty ( auto cleaner ) has stirred things up so it's cloudy...Lost quite a bit of chlorine over night so it's not as clean as I hoped it would be on opening... but I am happy to see Semi clear water Vs swamp! and those worms.. Anyone else see this before? I have read that people find all kinds of critters in their pools : )

    Be sure to empty the skimmers and backwash if you've sucked up a lot of worms and debris. They can still be stealing your FC. They're sharing the same water, they're just out of sight in the filter.

    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!

    I am having some Calcium scaling on my steps. My CH is at 400. Indiana ground water is typically 180 ppm, very hard water . With last years clean up we replaced a lot of water due to back washing and then this year to fill to get things up and running so replacing water wont help much I think. Would adding Borax help?
    FC 8.5
    CC .5
    PH 7.2
    CH 400
    TA 180
    CYA is not yet reading but I should be within 30 to 40 range.
