    Recommended CYA level?

    Hi everyone! I'm opening my pool and need a suggestion about the CYA level. Here are my current test results:

    FC 0
    CC 0.5
    TC 0.5
    pH 7.5
    TA 90
    CH 125
    CYA 0

    I know I need to SLAM (the water is a murky brownish/greenish color), and I need to add CYA, but at what level should the CYA be? I'm not running the SWCG until I get the pool cleared up; I've also got my AquaBot cleaning up what I didn't fish out earlier.

    30ppm is a good target for during the SLAM process. Then raise it to 70-80ppm afterward for the SWG.

    OK, I'll add CYA for 30ppm and get started on the SLAM. *crossing fingers* Wish me luck!
