    In battle with algae

    I have been SLAMING my pool to battle the algae. Good news pool is clearing. I can see the bottom clearly today. Although it still is slightly cloudy. Here are my numbers.
    FC 20
    TC 10
    TA 0
    PH 7.2
    TH 100
    Cya 30-50

    Ps. I am waiting on my drop testing kit. For now I just have the strips.
    Bare with me.

    I am glad to here your pool is clearing. I highly recommend you get a recommended test kit. Did you order one already? It is something you really need to complete a SLAM.

    Ok, hope you get the kit soon. We can help when you do. It's not that I wouldn't raise my FC also, but I wouldn't be doing right by you if I didn't warn to be careful with your Vinyl liner. Approaching 50 PPM FC is where we get spooky about fading one.
