    FC down to 1.5 while away

    Well, I come home after 3 weeks work, the wife says she has barely had time to sleep, let alone test the water.
    He last test was on 7-31-14 at 930 AM after the pump had been on for 1 1/2 hours
    FC 3
    CC 0
    TA 120
    PH 7.8
    CYA 60
    Temp 80
    Salt 3500
    water was crystal clear

    My first test when I got home on 8-12-14 at 9AM, pump had been on for 1 hour
    FC 1.5
    CC 0
    TA 120
    PH 7.4
    CYA 60
    Temp 84
    Salt 3400
    Tested FC again at 330PM 2.5 and out of the return jets with cell producing it was 4.0

    8-14-14 at 1PM
    FC 3, I have bumped my output up from 50 to 60%

    Will test again at the end of my pump run time to see where I am at.
    Suggestions and comments are always welcome.

    Bump your FC up to 8 and go swimming. IF you're worried, an OCLT will tell if anything is growing. Sounds like you're all good however.

    I did add 3 oz of diclor. Did not have any bleach. But by pool math i should b ok. My ph will come back naturally. And the little bit cya it adds is not an issue.since the install in April have only tweaked the swg and added some stabilizer twice. Very easy to take care of
