I originally put this question in the wrong forum and I don't know how to delete so I moved it here....b/c I don't know how to delete it
I can't get my CYA to stay put...I thought I got it up to 40 then we had lots of bad storms and rain and had to backwash a lot of water out b/c it was about to top over- I tested and it had dropped to 30- so I added some more CYA (granular in a sock let it dissolve for a day, didn't backwash for a couple) wanted to get it back up to 40 (which I got it back to 40)
I keep losing a lot of chlorine (was 90 all last week and mid 80's this week) so I get that there will be lose of chlorine, but I just got my new test kit refills and tested today and it at 27-30...I am at a loss...in 9 years never had this issue or maybe I wasn't testing right and finally figured it out LOL....
Anyways we are going to be gone for several weeks and have someone keeping up with the pool...should I try to get CYA back up to 40- and then have our house/pool keeper top up the bleach every night with about 30 ounces? to keep chorine within range of 3-5? (they wont best testing bc they have NO clue)
Thanks in advance
