Thanks to this site I think I now have a good understanding of my pool. I say "I think" because just when I think I've fully grappled it I learn something new here.
Anyway, want I want to verify:
1) As I live in hot/sunny Austin, Tx and my pool gets 8+ hours of direct sun I'm thinking that I want to raise CYA to 60 (and toying with the idea of even 70-80). The result being a minimum FC loss over 24 hrs.
2) My understanding is that FC level above the top range for a given CYA level is burned off more quickly, correct?
I understand that normal FC loss is going to be ~3ppm / day in the summer unless I get a cover (I'm seeing good justification for it).
Thanks in advance!
p.s. - latest pool readings
FC 4.0 (just added 8.25% bleach this AM to get it to this #)
CYA ~30. I'm going to raise this today
