Looking for guidance after draining pool twice to lower CYA. Just finished refilling and not sure what's next. I received a bad gallon of stabilizer, since I had never used didn't realize there was a problem until it was to late. About halfway thru the gallon it was solid. Can't totally blame the pool store since I overlooked the fact it could take days or a week for my CYA to register and kept adding more. My CYA went up, per Pool Math I drained the pool about 2/3. Waited a about a week for it to stabilize (no pun intended) tested today at 30-50 after using the half pool water and half faucet water method (60-100). Drained again halfway and refilled with fresh water. Other than the CYA the water was clear (daily brushing and vacuum) and all numbers were holding steady. Listing my numbers prior to draining below. My SWG alarm triggered for low salt last night which I added, and lost after draining.
Please Help Thanks!
Using the HTH 6 way test strips for now. Will invest in a better kit for next season.
CYA- 60 to 100
