Hi, My name is Kevin and I have been pool stored.
Before finding this site, just recently, I was told my CYA was too low (@ 30). The kid at the pool store told me to put in an entire 4lb bag of Suncoast Stabilizer into the skimmer. I did and now the CYA maxes out on the test kit at 100+. I have noticed that my SWCG cannot keep up anymore at its normal setting and have since raised it to keep FC maxed out at 5+ on my cheapo kit. My Taylor kit is ordered.
My question is to all the math wizards out there. If I was at 30 before, and added a 4lb bag. What number should I be at now. If just above 100, ok. If 200, should I drain and start over?
Any help is mucho appreciated. Oh yeah, Have had battled black algae in the past in this pool and am afraid to let the FC get below 3. Ever.
PH: 7.8 (added 2.5 cups MA)
