Hello again! We are later with taking the cover off of our pool here in eastern PA and we opened up to a swamp. I bought a bag of salt and a jug of liquid chlorine from the pool store today (yes mother's day!) I checked the numbers using my Taylor kit and I had a couple of surprises:
Ph 7.0 (probably lower - yikes)
CYA - would not register - (where did it go?) (was about 50 last year)
SALT 1600 (it disappeared too) (was 3600)
Would the CYA reading be affected by the temperature of the water? It is cold! 53 degrees
Or would it be affected by the PH being so low?
How much salt should I add to raise it to 3400 - 3600?
Thanks for being there and Happy Mother's Day!
