    Thanks for the advice. I am going to work the CYA number up. SWG is on. Water is crystal clear. So glad I found this site. And didn't go off the recommendation of my PB and neighbors to take my water to Leslie's for them to check it. ;)

    I passed the OCLT this morning. Thanks for your guidance. I suppose now I will work to get all of my numbers balanced? Funny how I thought the water looked clear days ago. It is extremely clear now.

    SWG is running. I added 700 oz of 6% bleach. The stabilizer is about half dissolved in the skimmer basket. I’ve been squeezing it every now and then.

    Good afternoon. I put 5 pounds of stabilizer in two nylons - one in each skimmer. Should I wait until this is all dissolved and retest in 24 hours? Also, should I put any bleach at this time? TIA

    I received our test kit and performed the CL & PH test. CL is registering zero and PH is 7.2. I also Performed the CL test with DPD Powder. The results are a slight tinge of pink. Very slight. Our SWG salt level reads 3500. I’m a little lost and concerned at the same time. Please advise.
