Less than 10 is low
10-20 is okay
20-50 is good.
I think the measureable range goes up to 200 (muck/peat moss)
I know how to manage turf with various CEC, I never pursued altering it without a renovation.
Another GREAT question from ant.

Start using organic fertilizers, use mushroom compost, any dark soil or or soil conditioner.
