Hey everyone, new to the forum, been reading and love this place.
OK here is my question and delima, I work for a company that has a few pools at its properties, well a pool outside that has 120,000 gallons of water and at its deepest end is four and a half feet. I just recently took over as the CPO and learning their ways, but they will not add Cyanuric Acid to help stabilize the deletion of chlorine. I was told by my immediate supervisor that it kills the probes and they are way to expensive to keep replacing. This pool has two feeders one for acid ( muriatic ) and one for chlorine, and the chlorine always times out after four hours and stops feeding. Now while I am there I have no problems reseting the feeder, but still have to add chlorine when no guest are present in pool. My question is what else can be done to help maintain the ideal chlorine level without adding cyanuric acid to help the absorption rate by the HOT Texas sun? And what is everyones opinion on the acid killing the probes?
thanks for any and all suggestions.
Pool is 120,000
ph is usually always 7.6-7.8
water is clear and has no algea
chlorine level is never over 2ppm
