    Ok great thank you so much I will work on adding the calcium. Is it safe for my kids to swim as I add the calcium lvls up? And I did just realize you were right I didn’t have pool math configured for swg thanks for noticing that now I have to add stabilizer to get cya up

    Ok so I tested my levels this morning and here are the results. Should I be adding the chemicals the pool store said to address issues 3 and 5? And I know fc is high because I added shock two days ago.

    I am going to add some more stabilizer and will test it again tonight. Is there a way to order just certain reagents for the Taylor k-2006 kit or do I have to order whole new kit?
