I have a reagent kit, but I brought a sample of my water to the local pool store to get tested mainly to see what my CYA level was. The results are below:
CC 0.5 (Should I worry about this or shock/boost for 24 hours? My water is crystal clear.)
CYA 39 (added 44 ounces of dry stabilizer today and will retest in a few days, goal is 70 with a FC of 5)
My main concern is my TA level. The lady at the pool store told me that I need to adjust my TA to at least 80 because I "won't get a true pH reading with the TA that low" and then readjust pH afterwards. I've been adding MA about once a week when it goes from 7.4/7.6ish to 8.0 and it's been pretty steady. Is that rate of rise too quick even with a SWG? Should I increase my TA to maybe 60 and see what happens? Thanks guys!
