    My test results, what should I do?

    Here are my numbers:

    FC 4.5
    TC 4.5
    Ph 7.8
    TA 100
    CYA - above 45, less than 50

    I know I need to bring my Ph down, but do I need to bring my FC down and raise my CYA?

    numbers look good. FC is fine. Just need to get your CYa up to about 80 for the SWG. May want to check the manufacturers recommendation but usually 80 is where you need to be for a swg.

    7.2 to 7.8 is the range you want to be in. Generally it trends upward with a swg. It wouldn't hurt to bring it down to 7.4 - or 7.2 since it's probably going to climb up anyway.
