First year pool owner, new concrete pool filled in May. I asked about adding CYA (because of this site) and he said not to bother with it. His logic is that my SWG is only running at 50%, so why add another chemical? I asked about hurting the longevity of the SWG and said its a non issue.
Its been so far so good even in the heat and sun here in MD. FC and TC in "reccomended" range. No algal explosions or other issues.... So- give me a reason(s) to add it at this point.
My variable speed pentair pump runs on speed 3 from 7-9am along with my vaccum, then it goes to speed 1 till 9pm. So its putting chlorine in all day at low levels. Why run my pump all day? Why not? It burns nothing electricwise, and keeping it running while we swim keeps garbage in the skimmers where it belongs.
Im a if its not broke dont fix it kinda guy, but willing to listen.
