Also a newbie and this thread tells me everything I need to know. Drain to get my CYA under control. Had some reoccurring algae and kept increasing chlorine and couldn't get rid of it. I brush and clean my filter until I was green in the gills. Shocked and it would be gone for a few days. I've had my chlorine up around 14-16 ppm and its finally making a dent. I can't keep this level of chlorine up. Worried about my equipment. Thanks for all the info. BTW, I just got my Taylor K-2006 kit to figure out my CYA a few weeks ago. It all makes sense now.
