I have been reading lots without posting but the pool rules says to ask the forum!
My pool has a two ft baja shelf and then angles down to 5 ft depth. It is 10X20 feet
so I have estimated the gallons to 4500-4800. It is also covered with an automatic
pool cover when not in use. Therein begins my question. What should the appropriate
CYA be? I think I have some algae because its cloudy right now with a slight green tint.
I went out of town for five days so I couldn't monitor it daily. I added about one lb
of powder form of CYA Saturday and have kept the filter running to distribute it
as the container says. I tested again this morning and there is still no chlorine.
Can you all give me my CYA goal and how often I should test it and what I can do
to get the chlorine level up? Should I also say I notice black slivers than I can't
touch to look at and calcium hard water chips that comes from the input of the pool.
I just vacuum them up. Also I had the filter cleaned on May 1st and according to
the guage it needs to be cleaned again? Sorry for so many details.
