Got my first water sample and test results. I'm pretty happy overall but have some concerns. Using a Taylor 2006 test kit.
CYA = 100+ (The black dot wasn't visible between the 1/2 way from the bottom to the 100. So its very high!
FC=11.6 (58 drops X .2) CC=.2 TC=11.8
It took me about an hour or so to run the sample after I pulled it from the pool. I'm concerned about the CYA being so high. Should I do a 1/2 drain or such. I don't know the history of the pool maintenance.
If you recommend a pool drain how should I go about it. I have a cartridge filter so there is no waste setting. I haven't seen a drain faucet on the piping, but will figure it out. Should I drain down to the skimmer level then fill or get a little sump pump, put in in the shallow end drain down to the bottom stair and then refill?
