    How am I doing?

    New liner and fill a month ago.. attached is my progress so far.. CYA is at about 40 so now is probably a good time to switch to LC correct? We have a well so I am thinking 1qt a month of metal removal should suffice. PS only has this PoolStyle stuff.. this ok or should I switch to Jacks or HTM?

    Spot on - time to go Liquid.

    Watch that FC level - make sure it never drops below the target range. (dose to the top and let drift to the bottom of the range).

    Do you know there are metals in your water?

    Your numbers look good, except the swing down to 1.5 FC today. Your CYA 40 dictates minimum FC of 3ppm. Get the LC in there pronto, today.

    Buy an expensive metal test kit ... or trust the pool store for that.
