First couple test

Apr 12, 2018
Ponchatoula, Louisiana
I have done my first couple of test.
FC 6.0
CC .5
PH 7.5
TA 110
CH 275
CYA 50

With that CYA level I plan to have FC target of 7 and PH target of 7.4. Is there anything else I should be concerned about?

Nope- It looks pretty good! You have a good grasp on the CYA/FC relationship. :goodjob:

You might find that with your TA at 110 (just slightly high) your pH can rise. If it hits 8, drop it down to 7.2 with muriatic acid, then aerate it using fountains or any splashing type water feature you can come up with and that will raise your pH again while having helped drop your TA.

No rush. You can do it now if you want or just wait and see how it goes. A lot also depends on how you chlorinate? SWG chlorinators tend to make the pH rise some.
