SO we just had a 27' above ground installed less than 2 weeks ago. I have been reading forums here on trouble free pool like crazy. Just trying to learn and understand. I even got the app for the pool calculator now. Our pool has a cartridge filter with a 2 HP pump with low and high speed. It has the Aqua Smarte Docking station with the Mizermax packs. I have read that those arent the greatest.
SO here is my concern. I have already gone through a pack of the MIzermax in less than 2 weeks. I get sun for about 8-10 hours a day on the pool. I run my pump continuously on low. Issue I have is my CYA is really low (I assume because I cant get a reading even with filling it up). I use the K-2006 test kit. Filled the tube all the way up. It gets a little cloudy but I can still see the black dot on the bottom. So not sure what its reading at. I ran out of the Mizermax pack the other day and found out when I tested. I immediately added a new one and also added in liquid chlorine. My CYA is still low. I know the Mizemax packs include CYA I believe. Im nervous about adding CYA because I dont want it to shoot through the roof since it is getting it by the packs. But I hate seeing the chlorine burn up so fast. We had a few days in the 90's last week. Any suggestions on what to do??
Testing results on everything:
BTW love this site and plan on being here alot more to get things ironed out!
