Hello All, I have been reading posts in this forum for awhile and familiarizing myself with the rules before I posted. I created a signature with my pool specifics.
My question today is about chemical levels in my UV Filtered Pool. My understanding is that I can run my FCL as low as .5 ppm with my UV filter. This leads me to the question of CYA levels. I am currently running a CYA of 60 on an outdoor pool in Texas with full Sun all day long. I have read in this forum that under these conditions a CYA of even slightly higher levels is not unheard of, but with that high a CYA level I am worried that FCL of .5 ppm would not be adequate even with a CYA of almost zero. Does the addition of the UV filter change the math on the CYA to FCL equation? Below are my current levels. The pool is completely clear no cloudiness. I just want to make sure that no one will get sick.
FCL .05 (just added 8 fl oz of 8.25% bleach per Pool Pal to raise the level to .5 ppm after this reading)
Thanks in advance for you assistance.
