Slam completed... when to balance


Aug 2, 2019
Yay! 3 days of slamming my pool and we passed all 3 tests! Well maybe 4 since frogabog said Should pass the heads or tails quarter test. It’s heads! Today’s readings 36 or so hours post slam:
CYA - 70
FC - 17.5
CC - 0.5
PH - 7.5
TA - 110-120
CH - 25 (vinyl)
Temp - 81

According to pool math my FC target should be 8. Do I wait until FC between 8-10 to adjust. Also a little confused as TF - 100 and pool math have different ranges for TA.
Thanks for all the help, I believe it’s time to swim! 🧜‍♀️

Just let your FC drift down to 8 then maintain it there with daily liquid chlorine.

Everything else looks good. Your TA is fine.
