    Today's test results

    I did a full battery of tests this afternoon with my TF100. Let me know if you think I should adjust anything:

    FC 5.5
    CC .5 (just a tinge of pink)
    CH 75
    TA 80
    pH 7.5 or 7.6 (I'm not great at judging the colors in this test)
    CYA 70

    I've never had any CC when testing in the past. Do you think the CC today could be due to a few leaves that were in the pool that I hadn't cleaned up yet. We've had rain and unseasonably cool weather the last few days. The water temp has dropped from 87 to 81!

    Go swimming before it cools off any more. Leave the rest alone.

    .5 or less CC is nothing to worry about. Sometimes I'll see it for a few days, and then it goes away for a week, and then it comes back.

    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.

    He's got a SWG. The FC levels are lower.
