Having fun with my new DPD-FAS kit. I took home some water after spending the weekend getting a little sun burned at the MGM Grand pool complex. Even though by the end of Saturday the lazy river pool had lots of debris in it and litterly thousands of alluminum beer bottles scattered on the deck the whole 100ft. around the river(drunks are litterbugs ), and the area by Wet rebulic stand like a dumpster. It was fun and the water didn't look too bad. The water sample numbers were from 4pm the next day.
CYA: 0, TESTED IT TWICE, yup still zero.
tasted salty when I was under the big waterfall, my ppm tester for home tap water maxes at 999 and the pool water maxed it out. So probaly a SWG system, makes sense.
Interesting stuff, I speculate that the TA is kept toward the low end of the range to be able to more easily move the PH up or down as needed. The absents of CYA I suspect is to be able to keep the chlorine at max killing abilty at the FC level they like to run. As far as sun burn off I guess It dosen't matter with a salt system, as you can just turn up the output as needed, dosen't really cost alot more as compared to non generator methods of adding liquid chlorine.
