    duck Hunter

    New pool owner here as well. I totally get the need for the higher cya when using a saltwater system, but one question I've had is why not run a higher cya when using just bleach? If the goal of running higher cya is to lower the production needs of the swg, wouldn't it also lower the need to add liquid chlorine, in-turn saving cost? Purely hypothetical, as I've already purchased my swg and will be running at the recommended cya levels anyhow. Thanks.

    You could certainly do that. Just remember if you have to SLAM you will need a higher FC level at higher CYA levels than you would at lower CYA levels.

    Plus, if you go on vacation you don't have much headroom for using pucks if you have to.
