    With CYA of 80 I wouldn't expect much smell if any from a FC level of 10-12. A strong smell usually means high CCs (combined chloromines). I suspect you had issues at that time.

    I maintain CYA at 80 and have never noticed much smell, if any, even with FC levels twice that (during a shock).

    I agree with JimK. However, if you're convinced, I would raise it part way then.
