New to this. Been lurking and studying for some time. Frankly embarrassed that I have owned pools for so long and have known so little. After too many battles with my pool, I am committed to getting this right.
FC - 1.4
PH - 7.6
TA - 140
CH - 290
CYA - <30
After the most recent battle, I dumped most the water last week. The CYA was off the charts and the local pool store is making its profit margins off of CYA reducer chemical (doesn't work) and other potions.
I have read enough to know the FC is way too low and will get more chlorine in. Poolmath (great webpage) is suggesting 7 lbs 8 oz of stabilizer. Oh, the horror of CYA first too high and now too low. Looks like the ABC's suggest purchasing solid stabilizer or conditioner and putting it into the skimmer? Is this the correct action?
Thank you in advance.
