    Welcome to TFP!!

    Are those your numbers or did you get them from a pool store? I know on your other thread you were talking about getting a test kit , but didn't see a resolution.

    What is your CYA?

    CYA? Without knowing the level of the CYA everything else is useless.

    Re: fuzzie

    Sorry fuzzie, but we just don't have any faith in pool store tests or test strips. Experience has shown there are too many variables that either give in accurate numbers, or they simply don't read high enough on the scale to tell us what we need to know (i.e. FC or CYA). Looks like you are a bit new to TFP, so if you explore the posts on this site a bit you'll see that repeated many, many times. Suggest you obtain one of the recommended test kits as noted below in my link (TF-100) so we can help you better. Post those numbers from your own recommended kit and you'll have more good advice thrown at you than you can handle.
