Hi all! I could use some help balancing my water. I’m having a trouble with my SWG reading low and my FC being high. Here are the numbers I just tested



13.6 FC
7.0 pH
60 TA
45 CYA

ive been running the SWG on about 40% and not constantly.
Let me know if I am leaving anything out. Still getting used to the forum.
Thanks so much

Turn off the SWCG. Measure your FC each day for two days late in the afternoon. See what your current FC loss is per day. Then set your SWCG to generate that amount of FC or just a bit more.

Plan to add about 20 ppm CYA sometime in the next 3-4 weeks.

Watch your pH. Have you been adding acid?

Thank you so much. I turned off the generator. That really helps.
I just ordered CYA as well.
no, should I add some acid as well? I thought it was a tad low.

can you confirm what my CYA and FC should actually be at?
