Just realized I've been maintaining wrong FC level for a year!

About a year ago I switched to SWG...side note -- best decision I ever made!

Before that conversion, I had printed out the Chlorine / CYA chart from this site, laminated it, and kept in my test kit....I just cut out the portion that covers NON SWG pools and used that part ( because I had a non swg pool ).

When i converted, I just kept using the same chart!

Feels so weird knowing that with a CYA of 60 (and I'm going to bring it up to 70), my FC should only be at 4! It's currently sitting at 8, which would have been great for non-swg.....this is going to take some getting used to! 4 just seems so low!

Yes don’t go too low. I was at the Min of 3 and worked great until a few heavy rain and off to the store for bleach which was as hard to find as TP. I now keep mine around 6 now

Ok, glad to see the replies. I'll plan to run it a little high. If that's the general consensus, maybe it should be changed on the chart? Just a thought.

Thanks to all!
