If you notice on the FC/CYA Chart it doesn’t go that low for swg w/cya of 40 so chlorinate based on the chlorine part of the chart for now . You’ve been well under minimum fc for your cya for a bit. Its very likely u have something growing. The oclt will confirm

Added 43 Oz of bleach on 5/29
About an hour later

Fc 7.4
Cc 1.0

Saturday morning
Fc 7.8
Cc 0.8
Ph 8.0
Ta 80
Cya 30

Not sure why the fc went up overnight. I assume that’s negligible.
The swg was unplugged
Sampling error with the first collection? I collected the water from the same allocation for both tests. Away from the return.

Nonetheless I don’t see any fc loss overnight

So now what?
1. I think I need to add cya to get it up to 60-70. Can the kids swim while I add the cya via the sock in the skimmer method as suggested by @Texas Splash.
2. Will monitor ph if gets higher will need to reduce.
3. Tonight Should I leave the swg off? I can’t select a percentage on my swg. It’s all or none.
4. I’m not shocking the pool.

Am I on the right track?

??I wouldn’t aim for more than 60 cya incase u run into an issue & need to slam in the near future & so u don’t over shoot the mark. Check again in several days/ a week & go from there. In the meantime be sure & maintain the upper end of target for the cya u add so u never go below min.

Just a follow up.

Added the 1lb of stabilizer in the sock in the skimmer with a zip tie. Brilliant.

This morning
Fc 5.8 (3.4,5.4)
Cc0.2
Ph 7.8
Cya 60

Having to run the swg from 5-8 hours at night to maintain a fc of around 5.

Anything else I need to do?
