Thank you, Chris. Will this be a continual battle with the tree droppings? This is light compared to what will happen in a storm, fall, and spring. Or is it because I was keeping my chlorine too low to begin with? I clean the leaves out several times a day and will start vacuuming daily until I get a solar cover to minimize it. Is it ok to swim with FC at 10? Thanks again!d,
Your CC is a little high and probably due to the debris. All organic compounds will consume FC. First they react to form a combined chlorine then eventually they fully oxidize all the way down to gases that vaporize and your CC will drop; You can raise your FC to 10 for a few days and it should completely oxidize the chlorine consuming compounds. Then drop back down to normal range. The rest looks great! Enjoy your pool and don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
Keep up the great work, you're well on your way to TFP gorgeous pool bliss!
