    here's my numbers -- first time to have cc!

    CL 8.5
    cc .5
    pH 7.6
    TA 110
    CH 110
    CYA 90

    I'm still working to get my CYA down.
    I'm adding bleach this evening to get my CL up to 11
    Will this take care of the cc? I'm still figuring all this out.


    Thanks.

    Pam,

    Not uncommon tohave .5ppm CC's. No worries.

    If it goes to 1ppm that would indicate a need to shock.

    would these numbers indicate a reason there seems to be some slight cloudiness in the deep end of the pool? It's kind of at that point where you really can't tell if it's cloudy or if it's normal and just looks different than the shallow end because it's deeper water. (did that make sense?)

    No, the #'s don't indicate cloudiness. One of the first things you can notice is how your water looks. If it looks flat, not quite right, etc.

    You could do the overnite test tonight to confirm if you have organics. Did you verify your FC of 11 tonight? If yes, you could test it in the morn before the sun hits it. If you lose 1ppm FC or less, you should be okay.

    Running with that high CYA will make you really have to stay on top of your chlorine. It could have very easily dropped too low at some point. (I think I read that you are moving?)

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
