Hi guys!

Just took my first readings for the season, trying to get this bad boy opened so I can get the solar cover on and start warming that water.

Here are my numbers. I didn't do pH because usually you have to adjust TA first, so pH doesn't matter much.

FC: 0
CC: 0
TC: 0

CH: 50 ppm

TA: 40

CYA: 20

OTO: 0
pH: 7.2

What do you recommend for steps to get where I need to be?

I am going to SLAM it as some leaves got in this year and I noticed a few dead bugs and tree bits floating around the pool lately.

OK sounds good, that's my plan, and I'll mess with TA AFTER the SLAM.

My dot was still visible even at 20, so I'll probably do the math like it's 15 since it was cloudy but visible a little over the 20 mark.
