Welcome to TFP! :wave: If you look at our FC/CYA Chart, your FC is still well under the maximum SLAM level/limit for a CYA of 70. As long as you are not running the SWG, the FC will eventually fall. No need to add anything to try and force it. The big question though .... how are you getting those numbers? Which test kit are you using? Also, where are you located? Please update your city/state as it gives us a better picture of how your water could react.

I think you know your CH is also low. Using the PoolMath tool or APP, you can learn how much calcium to add. Lots of folks around to help you with any other questions.

Thank you! I am using the tf100, magnetic base, etc. I use all tfp and Taylor. I travel a good bit for work and we had some cold weather come in and I did not react quick enough on the swg. I am in Houston. I was just concerned that 0 CC was a problem. I know the CH is low but was told to wait a while to increase, if that is false I will address soon.

Perfect! :goodjob: Yeah, the last bit of cold weather knocked our water temps down a bit, but that's fine. A zero CC is good. We like CCs to be 0.5 or less. And even though your CH is a bit low, the elevated TA and pH in the upper 7s is good to help compensate. You seem to be in good shape.
