I am having problem with my CYA for a while now.
First, my numbers: (As of 11 AM today)
FC = 1.6*
CC = 0.0
TA = 100
CH = 250
PH = 7.6
CYA = +90*
My test kit is Taylor R-2006c and the pool is plastered.
From Orlando, FL
I saw a table somewhere in the forum with the recommended FC depending on the reading of the CYA.
Now I hope I did not do something wrong. I added liquid chlorine (from the store). Now my concern is that I added to much.
The new reading at 6 PM:
FC = 13.6
CC = 0.2 or 0.5 depending on the level of the water (10ml/25ml
TA = 100 (same)
CH = 250 (same)
PH = 7.8! maybe a little more.
CYA = +90*
I knew that adding liquid chlorine was going raise the PH. My concern is that I don't want to damage anything. I was reading somewhere that it will get back to "normal" eventually.
Should I add muriatic acid now? Or will it safe to to wait untill tomorrow and take another reading.
I know I have to drain the pool (close to 2 feet) and refill. Will do it soon but for now I can't .
Thank you in advance for your help.
