    Could I be doing this right?

    I am a bit confused... Here are my results from today:

    Ph: 7.5
    Ta: 100
    Ch: 275
    Cya: 20

    Can that be correct? That my fc is 3 but cc is 0?

    Yesterday my numbers exactly 24 hours ago are:

    Cc: I didn't check
    I didn't add any bleach but I added 55 oz of liquid stabilizer. And the cya number didn't go up much. I am worried to add too much and have to drain part of the pool.

    Last night we had bad rain storms. What am I doing wrong or what should I do at this point? I have read and reread the pool school but still bit confused. Also does the pump have to be running when I add the chemicals? Thank you all so much!

    It takes a few days (a week maybe) for CYA to move - you definitely want to sneak up on that number. This is exactly what you want to see in regards to FC, a value in CC would indicate that something is growing. Yes the pump should be running for at least 30 minutes for a chem add. You want them to get mixed in.

    No CC is good.

    That much liquid stabilizer will only take you to about 30. If you're already reading 20 a day later, I wouldn't be too concerned. It should show closer to 30 in another day or two. And then you can add a little more.

    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.
