    Water is clear. in the past i have just used the basic tayler k1000 kit. This year i decided to step up my game and got the TF-100 kit. I am sure my CYA was worse, but with how much water i had to pump out this winter due to rain, that probably helped.

    Every time i have them test they tell me my phosphates are too high. this test showed 500ppb. Is phosphates something i should be worried about?

    FC is a little low for that level of CYA ...

    Theoretically the phosphates act as fertilizer from r algae. Since the fc keeps the algae from vowing it's not an issue
