    Question Will be gone for a week...Levels?

    FC=2ppm
    CC=0
    pH=7.5
    TA=70
    CH=75
    CYA=55
    Salt=3870, put in 40 lbs. yesterday.
    Water temp=90F

    Pool Math says add 41 oz/volume stabilizer to raise CYA to 80ppm & 38 oz/vol. baking soda to raise TA to 90.
    My SWG runs @ 60% for 6 hrs/day.
    Also, Hurricane Arthur will rain on us and send 20 mph winds tomorrow which will blow a lot of leaves and such into the pool.
    Do you think I should make adjustments to compensate for my absence?

    The TA is fine, you do not want it higher with a SWG.

    That FC is bordering on low. I would raise the CYA, but leave the output the same and the FC should come up. Although you should verify that before you leave.
