Quick question about chlorine levels

Hey all,

This forum has helped me a ton and my pool has been pretty low maintenance for me so far and perfectly clear. 2 things I wanted to ask. How do my results below look? I noticed my Chlorine levels have crept up over 10. I have the SWCG set to 50% right now. Do you all normally turn it off for a few days and turn it back on set a lower %?

I did lower PH today, but honestly my pool likes to sit at 7.8.

FC 10.5
CC 0
PH 7.8
TA 70
CH 250
CYA 50
Salt 3000
Temp 76
CSI -.21

Thank you

Use Poolmath to see what % setting and runtime combination meets your daily loss. Then set the SWCG that way and see how it balances.

Without that odd weather Pat mentioned, you might have lost FC due to sun with CYA of 50. Mine is at 60 and I don't seem to be losing FC either but today is the first really sunny hot day we've had.
