After running the Taylor test kit against my pool water, here are the results:
CYA 300+ (I cut the sample in thirds and mixed with 2/3 tap water, then *3 to get results. They slightly above 100 on the CYA scale.)
I've also got algae starting to creep on the sides and bottom. Water is otherwise clear.
I appreciate your help in advance. What should my next steps be?
Note that I just moved into this house and 'inherited' the pool. The vinyl liner is toast and the seller agreed to pay for a new liner, which was going to be installed at the end of this season. Instead of futzing with the water balances, should I just go ahead and have the liner replaced and refill anew? I live in NC so realistically I have only a few more weeks before the season ends.
Thanks in advance.
