Over the past month or so I've added about 5 lbs (approx 2.5 lb twice a month apart using sock in skimmer method) of Pool Time's Chlorine Stabilizer as I'm not sure there was any CYA in the pool when I bought the home, or at least Taylor's test kit said so.
But Taylor is still reading it at 30 - 40, when I should be around 80 at least given the size of my pool.
My questions are:
- How reliable is Taylor's kit with CYA? I know it's supposed to be read when the black dot "disappears", but doing research some owners don't seem to trust it
- I've found I need to add about an inch or so of water every couple days due to evaporation. I wouldn't think that would have such a dramatic effect on reducing CYA though.
- Or maybe Pool Time's Chlorine Stabilizer is just a poor product?
- Some other reason my pool can't seem to maintain CYA and\or won't rise to acceptable levels?
