    Still can't get it right

    I was getting really high CYA levels and I replaced at least 1/2 of my pool's water with new. I let that circulate for 24 hours and here are the new results

    pH 7.2
    FC 4
    CC 0
    CH 250
    TA 150
    CYA 70
    16x32 (22K gal)/ IG/ vinyl liner/Hayword Proseries Sand filter

    Do you have a SWG? If so your CYA is fine. Your FC is too low for 70 CYA though. FC/CYA Chart

    If not.... your CYA must have been about 140ish to start.

    How's the water looking? How are you testing?

    Re: Still can't get it right

    how high was really high? Was it over 100? What test/test kit got you a reading over 100? If your CYA was 140-160, then you would expect to be at 70 after a 1/2 drain.

    Your FC is still a touch low, but all your numbers are within usable range, just some tweaking but nothing bad.

    You may be fine to just let it ride if you get a lot of rain. Get the FC up.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
