    fresh off SLAM test results/input

    passed my OCLT last night, so wanted to do a full run of numbers for input. waiting for FC to drop

    FC: 26.5
    CC: 0.0
    PH: didnt take it due to high FC
    CH: 700
    TA: 120
    CYA: 70
    Salt: 3100ppm

    assuming i get my ph to 7.5, pool math says my CSI is 0.26 which is below the 0.60 number\

    i think overall pretty good, need to get my CYA up slightly. CH is a bit high, but i dont think its an issue since the CSI is below 0.6, agree?

    I think I would probably leave CYA alone. It will likely drop to 60 over the next month or so and then I would bring it to 80......no harm either way, tho.

    I'm sure you know your CH is a little high. When your FC comes down and you start to test pH, I would keep it (pH) in the lower 7'6 if it will stay there for you. Allowing (or doing on purpose) your TA to drop down may assist that lower pH. The whole idea in this paragraph is to keep a slightly lower TA and pH to offset your higher CH........that'll prevent any scaling.

    Nice job on managing your pool water.....you're off and running!!

    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.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    well the pool was never in bad shape, just slightly cloudy, no green. just couldn't get my SWCG to keep up and get FC in correct levels so i slammed it. it is quite a bit clearer though, even the wife says the pool has never been this clear. we've only been in the house a few months.
