After using BBB method for about a season of swimming, I got LAZY (i know, i know) and switched back to pucks for a few months. Now my CYA level is off the charts (along with my calcium hardness levels) so I think I'm looking at a partial drain. Yay! So my question is, how does middle America deal with this CYA issue? I'm assuming here (and I know what they say about assuming) that most pool owner's (no one on this board) use pucks and haven't even heard of the BBB method. So is the rest of America faced with a partial drain every couple of years, or are most people just ignorant of their levels? If I'm missing some way to keep my CYA levels down that any others know of, please share.
thanks in advance!
