Hi, new pool owner, pools been open a couple weeks and just turned over to me 5 days ago.
FC 7.5 Was 11 couple days ago, and 14 couple days before that
So i'm dialing in my SWCG. PB wanted it (from his experience) set at 55%. With my autocover being used while we aren't swimming the pool's heat and chems seem to really be staying in. I've dialed the SWCG down to 20% and as of last night i'm at 7.5.
So My CYA is low, do i have a need to raise it to the recommended 70-80 range? I don't appear to have a problem yet of keeping FC, but again my pool is covered unless being swam in. So maybe it's open 2 hrs a day. Weekends will be different of course, as will Chlorine consumption via bather load.
I know this is going to have to be trial and error on my part and i'm fine with that, I'm just curious if i have a need to get CYA up, given the constant "shade" my pool has.
