Reagent arrived. test results tonight:
FC:9 my second test said 10, probably error
CC-0
PH-7.5
TA-90
CH-300
CYA-50
Salt is probably 2900-3000
Water is clear. Set pump to shut back down at 6pm so it’s not running 24 hours
Going to retest in the am and see what I have. I have added no liquid since Thursday night and I ran the cell yesterday for maybe 8 hours on 25% did not run the cell today.
If I hold overnight I may turn cell back on at 15% to see what I get when I get home from. Work. I hope this is all done now!

Raised CYA up to roughly shy of 70. This evening. My chlorine was 7.5 when I got home so I lost about 1.5 today. I went ahead and added 2 cups of chlorine to bump up a little around 9. Strangely when I went to add the stabilizer I found the pump off and the breaker was tripped. Not sure when or why that happened but I set it to quick clean go run the liquid stabilizer in for an hour. Think the pump was only off a short time. Just not sure what tripped it.

Well I have to say I am officially sold on this site. After this battle and the people on here and the pool school I am pleased. Pool has recovered from whatever was going on. Yes the sun moved and the temps changed some but the slam and other work paid off. I have a really clean pool. Levels are staying spot on with the exception of adding a few ounces of acid a week and the salt system as only been running at 15% for 9 hours a day and my level has stayed between 8 and 8.5. Have not had to add any liquid in weeks and just adding salt and acid. I may raise my stabilizer up a tad but other than that I am on the road to easy. Pool has been really clear and even clear when using the pool light. I was a little worried about running the chlorine at 8 but so far no issues. I may lower down to between 7-8 but I don’t see a real reason.
This group has been awesome and sorry for some of the snappy responses but I was extremely fed up with the issues.

I will look at making a donation. I will make a point to buy my testing supplies from here as well.
After my celebration however this week for no real reason the pool has begun to drop in chlorine level again. I added stabilizer yesterday and today I ended up lower than yesterday. I had been sitting at 8 then dropped to 6.5 yesterday and today at 5.5. Raised the stabilizer yesterday back to 70 from 40. Today I set my salt cell up and added 12 ounces of liquid chlorine to get me to 7 so I can check at dark and do a overnight. Ugh I hope this doesn’t start again.

Overnight shows barely a 0.5 loss. So seems to pass. I think low cya was cause. I bumped system to 20% and didn’t go below target per TFP app. Learned to keep liquid chlorine on hand. I wanted to be closer to 6 or 7 anyway just made me get a little nervous when it started dropping after a few weeks
