I'd say that looks pretty good. You might want to get your CYA up a little bit more. At least 30 ppm on it, I would think.

Yep, looking pretty good. :goodjob:

I agree w/257 that you should probably raise your CYA to at least 30 and maybe even shoot for 40.

How much sun does your pool get each day?

How does your water look?

With full sun most of the day, I suggest you bump the CYA to 40 and see how that goes.

Your water is not sparkly? I'm not sure where you are with pool opening/testing, but have you done an overnight test?
