Hi guys. I'm new to the site, but just fired my grumpy and over priced pool man. I just bought this beautiful old house 3 months ago. Pool is 18 years old. The water is crystal clear. I have new filters ready to put in. New Pool Cleaner working. Water has looked great all 3 months I've been here. But,
my Tayler K2005 told me today...
CYA off scale. Too high to measure !!
CH 720 !!
Im guessing the pool has been maintained with tab floaters for years, as it is now.
I also have a new 55 lb bucket of boric acid setting here ready to go in after I install the new filters. I've been reading + learning everything I can here before making any big changes. Water is crystal clear. I'd like to wait until rainy season (February ) to dump and refill. I think the water company here might be more understanding when it's raining outside?
I don't want to fix what ain't broke. If you know what I mean.
Looking for some expert advice please
Im guessing the Borates could help buffer the effects of the high ch and maybe the potential problems of high cya?
Plus I'd just like to try the softer water feel and look.
