    High CC reading Question

    Hi, just have a quick question regarding CC levels. I tested all my levels tonight and my CC is at 1.2 ppm. I read in the book that came with the Taylor K2006 kit that the level should be at 0. Any ideas of what I should do if anything? My other levels where - FC 2.4 (which I added more to bring level to 7.0 after testing) PH 7.8, TA 70, CH 190, CYA 35. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Outdoor? If so, open the cover on a nice sunny day when the sun is shining on it for a couple hours. The UV should clear up the CCs.

    Also do you add any MPS? That will falsely show up as CCs.

    I normally do not add MPS. Last week I did add 2 oz. of MPS after there was six of my daughters friends in there for about an hour or so. As far as exposing it to the sun that might have to wait until about March here in Michigan, not much sun in the winter. Is it bad to have that CC level that high or could it be from the MPS last week?

    I'm not sure how long MPS will show up as CC, but it seems likely that's probably what's happening here.

    So is it ok to have a level that high? Will it eventually go down by itself or is there something I should be doing? Thanks in advance

    Re: High CC reading Question

    You can do a SLAM to see if that will lower the cc if you would like. Here is a link to it:
    Pool School - SLAM - Shock Level And Maintain

    This might be a good idea since your FC went below the recommended level for your CYA as seen in this chart:
