    Am I on the right track...again??

    OK...we seem to be done "shocking". And a big THANK YOU to Duraleigh for the LIGHTNING FAST SHIPPING of the R-0871!!! WOW!!

    Here are my numbers today:

    FC 7 (still coming down after shocking??)
    CC 0
    TC 7
    pH 7.6
    TA 110
    CH 110
    CYA 20 (again, I never completely lost the dot...and I had just added CYA the other day, prior to shocking.)
    Salt 3010
    Temp 95

    What's my next step?

    Thank you again for all of your expert help!!

    When you added your CYA, how much did you add and what is your goal for the CYA level? Since you have an SWG, you should shoot for 60 to 80 ppm of CYA. Wait a week after you have added CYA before testing it again.

    Your CH is a little low and you will want to bump that up.

    95 degrees! I thought my pool was warm at 88 degrees.

    I was shooting for a target of 30 the other day...but now I'll go for the 60 that's recommended. (i'm still not sure I'm doing that test right...do you really get to where you can't see the dot????)

    Yes, we're 95 degrees!!! I love it, but it's not very refreshing after you've mowed the lawn or anything like that. Great for the kiddies, though!!!!

    Yep, right to that point. Best to read the sample in a shady spot on a bright and sunny day.

    Here's a link to Taylor's informational on testing for CYA. It has a good graphic for comparison for you.
