CYA test as of this afternoon is reading between 20 - 25. We've added nearly 7 lbs of stabilizer at this point and it still will not go up. We did try to add about 4 lbs of it when we were shocking - could this have prevented it from actually being absorbed? We've also washed our filter out during the shock process...which I assume also washed some out.
Last addition was early last week, and that was about another 2 lbs. Do we just keep slowly adding more in, using the sock in skimmer method, or is there a better way?
According to the recommended levels, we want to be around 70 - 80, correct? At this point, i don't see how we'll ever get there! We've been trying to keep our FC around 4 - 5 ppm...but have had some fluctuation due to learning how to use our SWG!
Thanks for any tips or advice - it's always appreciated!
