Long story.....now my pool has mustard algae.
I ran full tests, these are my numbers:
CYA -0- !!
PH 8 !!
I know I need to lower my PH to 7.2, I have the dry acid and I'm ready to lower it BUT notice my CYA levels, they are -0-.
My question is do I have to raise my CYA levels before I can effectively slam?? I know raising the CYA level would also lower my PH. My problem is I cannot find any cyanuric acid locally, and the only place to buy pool chems around here does not stock them this time of year. (walmart)
So.....can I just adjust my Ph and ignore my CYA for now or would the slam not work?
