Bought a house that has a pool so this is all new to me. Bought the recommend test kit. Initially had done a test at the local pool shop (Yes I know it can be off). I had a problem with the pool going cloudy initially. After the pool shop test they said the CYA was 100 which turned out to be correct based on the new kit. After reading the site I realized with a CYA of 100 the FC would have been too low. So I upped it. That stopped the cloudiness. The new test kit showed the FC to be 11.5 which is right in the range for the CYA of 100. My concern is that that the PH test can be off since it is above 10ppm. So my plan is to let the FC drop back towards 7 and test to make sure the PH is right. As for the CYA i know the only thing I can do there is remove water and add new. My plan is to keep the pool as is is for the summer. I will have to remove water in the fall to close anyways and I have swung back and forth on converting to a SWCG which would require higher CYA anyways. Just wondering if anyone had some thoughts on the plan. Just want to make sure I am doing everything right.
