Moved into a home with an pool about two weeks ago and I am a first time pool owner so I know next to nothing about pools and maintaining them. The previous owners had a pool company taking care of it but I can't pay someone else to do work I think I should be able to do, so I take my sample of pool water to local pool store to test the water and from what they said my pool was in pretty good shape but needed to bring the Chlorine levels up. Here are the numbers from the readout sheet
They recommend manually increasing the FAC by adding 12oz of Power Powder plus. then to add 2 tablets to my Chlorinator and condition with another product as needed. so I bought all the stuff and a supply to get me through until the fall. I wanted to do my own testing so I bought a Taylor kit K-2006, this was all before I found this forum.
I have been reading a bit on this forum for a couple of days (pool school and such) and my Kit came today so I test the water it's been about a week from the time I have taken my water sample to the pool store. The first thing I tested is my CYA which was a little over 110 by my estimate tester only goes to 100. How can this be, going up 50 points in one week. so my question is did I read this wrong or could it go up that quickly in one week? I haven't tested anything else as of yet but wanted to see your thoughts while I test the rest.
Thanks in Advance!
