    How do my numbers look?

    Any advice? Don't know why I feel so intimated by all this! And my DH must think I'm nuts as I flew out of bed this morning saying "got to beat the sun".
    Last night:
    fc- 5.5
    cc- .5

    This morning
    fc- 5
    cc- .5
    Ph- 7.2
    ta- 80
    ch- 20
    cya- 20 (I added this on the 10th, and not sure if I should wait awhile longer to add more)

    Feeling intimidated is normal when you're learning something new and foreign to you. With time and parctice it'll become second nature. Hang in there.

    Your numbers look good. Personally I would hold the FC close to shock to see if I could get that last little bit of CC to go away.

    How much CYA did you add? What value were shooting for? I'd think 5 days would be enough time for it to be mostly dissolved but if the goal was much higher than you're seeing, give it another few days.

    Thanks
    I added 4 pounds of 96% cya. My goal was 30.

    I'd give it a couple more days and test it again, then add more from there.

    Just double checking. My shock level would be 10 and I would need to add 185 0z of 6% bleach and I should do this now or tonight?

    Yep, shock 10. I'd shock tonight/this eve - after the sun is off the pool

    There's a possibility the CC will be burned off by the sun today.

    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.

    I noticed on another thread you said you'd just took the solar cover off a day or two ago, so that may be the reason for the CC's. They just may need time to gas out.
