CYA 20 or less hard to tell
Water temp 90
I seem to be losing CYA. It's been really hot I've been adding about 1/2 - 1 inch of water every other day and running a sprinkler attached to the outside pool water spigot (used to be for a slide) to try and keep the water temp below 90. My FC has been dropping from about 7-5FC to 2FC each day - I'm adding about 1 182oz jug a day in the evenings. The water is clear and sparkly and I seem to have a grip on the chemistry but I was wondering a few things:
1. a friend said his eyes burned a little the other day - should I bump the PH up to 7.8 or leave it as is? No one else has complained, the only thing I've noticed different is my skin has been kinda itchy in the water, but that could be from all these bugs!
2. I have a big tub of 3" trichlor pucks - could I add some of those to raise my CYA since they are just sitting around? If so how many?
