    Is this normal?

    I have been slamming my pool for the past week, and am seeing a VAST improvement in the water clarity...
    My question has to do with the CYA level... I don't see ANY CYA in my pool, however after a full day of sun, my FC only dropped 5ppm from 16 at 6am to 10.5 at 6pm.
    Without any measerable CYA, is this a normal drop? I expected the FC to be a LOT lower this evening.

    levels at 6pm

    FC 10.5
    CC 0
    TA 80
    PH 7.2
    CYA <20

    I have had 0 drop in FC in the overnight drop test for the past 3 nights straight.

    There really isn't a normal. You are doing well with that little loss, so you must be getting close. You can up it a little if you like and see if a little more Cya helps. Looks like you are just waiting to clear now.

    Welcome to TFP, and congratulations for taking the ball and running. Good job!
