    Yesterday's results stink, but pool looks like this anyway. It was my first ever test after a week of anxiety over it..couldn't believe it was SO easy to do my own chems, thanks to TFP. I and it is, a work in progress
    About to add some muriatic acid and retest again ...thank you all!

    The chlorinated dispenser is still in there because I figure I'd use up the little bit of pucks left in there...

    You are low on chlorine. You need some sooner rather than later.

    Pucks add CYA to your water and you are already too high....take them out.

    Well, duraleigh, why didn't you just say so?

    Yes. I know. I did read pool school but I knew I would hear about it. I was just being a bit cheap, I suppose, but I sure don't mind the extra reinforcement.

    Okay, okay....I'm on it.. thank you!!

    Beautiful pool! And as you already heard and acknowledged, with a relatively high CYA (75 rounded-up to 80), your target FC is 9, but NEVER lower than 6. By the end of the summer, that CYA may lower slightly due to splash-out and/or water transfer, and long as you only use chlorine. Enjoy your weekend!
