    Re: Still Learning

    Numbers look good.
    The CYA chart says for a CYA of 40 , FC target is 5-7 with a minimum of 3. So as long as you donít expect the FC to drop below 3 at some point before your next dose, you can wait. If you think you are using more than 2 ppm per day then raise the FC a little bit. Yesterday to today looks like a 2.5ppm drop assuming you didnít add anything after you posted your numbers. Itís a little too early to get a good feel for daily usage but maybe bring FC back to 7 again and see what happens.
    Just coming off the SLAM, Iíd be a little hesitant to ride the minimum

    I added 14 oz of chlorine, vacuumed the pool and had to add about a inch of water and now the FC 6 and CC 0.

    Youíre almost on autopilot now. Smooth sailing from here on out. Just maintain your FC in the right range (6-8) and you should be fine.

    Re: Still Learning

    How did your CYA jump up to 140? Is that a typo? I'm guessing it is since you no longer use solid forms of chlorine right? If so, get some liquid chlorine in there ASAP.

    For future reference, any time you anticipate having a lot of swimmers over, it's always wise to bump up your FC 4 to 5 PPM above normal in anticipation to what they will do to your pool's chemistry. In addition, check your FC after they leave as well to be sure that you're still in good range.

    If it was me, I'd probably bring it up to around 12 PPM and perform a OCLT to make sure that nothing is growing in the water. I'd bet you're probably fine though.
