My pool is currently using approximately 4ppm of FC each day, about 182 oz of bleach. My CYA is 40-50. Overnight I am losing .5-1 ppm of FC and the pool is clear. I'm in Houston and its been extremely hot and dry for the past month or so. The pool water temp was at 92 degrees yesterday. We also have a really high bather load with about 6 neighborhood kids.
I was wondering if I raised my CYA level to 60-70 would that help me use less FC each day? I know that's a little higher that what is recommended, but with our temperature and bather load, I was thinking that might help. Also, given the above stats, do you think 4ppm of FC is too much to be losing in a day?
