On 7/3 I posted that my CYA was now 50 in the shade and 70 in the sunlight whereas before draining water it was 80. I decided to stay consistent and test in the shade and again I got 50. Maybe it would've been 70 in the sunlight again so say the number is 60.
Question 1 - Would you leave the CYA there and adjust FC according to the Chlorine/CYA chart (CYA 50/FC 4-6) or get my CYA back to 80 and keep my normal day to day FC at 8 or 9 like I've been doing?
Question 2 - My PH keeps going back up to 7.8 and I have to adjust it back down. I add what pool calculator says and it always gets down to 7.5 (I have the goal set to 7.2, but it doesn't seem to get there) then after a few days or so back to 7.8. I could be a little off because of the colors, but I'm pretty sure. Is this normal and I need to just keep adjusting or is there a problem?
Question 3 - Is Calcium Hardness at 330 or 340 too high, and if it is what do I do?
Just in case you need my numbers, here they are today:
Bromine 4 I used the ph/Chlorine test for this because the yellow side also tests bromine right? Is that what you all go by? Or does Bromine matter?
I have not checked pool calculator or added any chemicals yet today. Thanks a bunch.
