    im new

    hello central cali here with 18k pool. I bought a new home a year and a half ago with a pool and have been learning ever cense. I am not really having problems yet but have noticed a rise in cya this summer. I have a package of bio active already but wont be trying it till probly next week cause of chlorine levels. I know it may not work but I have already purchased it so I am will to give it a try. please note that I am not having major problems with my pool. cya levels are between 150 and 200. they have been on the rise all summer due to chlorine tabs and now this will be an experiment. I will probly go swg if this stuff doesn't work

    Welcome!

    To make your experiment more scientific it would greatly help if you could use widely recommended test kit TF100 for tests. Then we would know for sure what works and what doesn't.

    thanks. I have been self teaching through this forum and others. I plan on draining pool and adding swg but thought I would give this new product a try first. I am not looking for a miracle because my wife has very sensitive skin and swg will be better for her but I am curious about this stuff.

    I was big on saltwater fish aquariums for a long time so I understand the importance of testing and correcting water issues. already changed my pump out to an intelliflow and run it 24 hr a day.

    Well just to give an update. I have the bioactive but free chlorine is still to high to use. I need to go get an accurate test kit also. I'm hopefully going to start Sunday or Monday

    Thanks for showing the move. I realized it should have its own thread.
