constantly adding chlorine

Postby irishsph » Fri 25 Jul, 2008 14:20

I just bought a Taylor K 2006 test kit, and if I performed my first test properly, here are my readings:

FC = .4ppm
CC = .22 ppm

pH = 7.6

Alkalinity = 120ppm

Calcium hardness = 120 ppm

CYA = <30ppm

any advice anyone can offer as far as adding the proper chemicals and keeping the water stabilized?

thanks!

I would push the CYA level up to 40-50. Is your water clear? Chlorine is used up fighting algae or can be broken down and used up by the sun. A slightly higher CYA level should help with that.
