    Adding cya

    I am trying to bring my cya level up, while trying to be sure not to add too much- how soon can I test the water after adding the cya to know the accurate level of cya?

    About a week, unless you use the liquid stuff, in which case, after 24 hours or so.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
