Trying to get the CYA level up for my conversion to salt. Ive added about 6 lbs of granular CYA to my 22K gallon pool, yet none is registering on the test. I also had a couple pucks leftover from last year and dissolved those through my inline chlorinator.
I added it via a skimmer sock full of the granules hanging in front of one of the returns. For 4 lbs of it, it only took a few hours to dissolve (I would go back to it every 30 minutes and shake it up to shuffle everything around)
I added this all about 14 days ago but a test tonight shows no (or very very little) CYA. I figured I should be at about 30 by now...is that just too low to be reading? Im using the original PoolForum version of the TF test kit, if the hardware makes any difference. Im testing it by adding the CYA reagent to the pool water, mixing gently for 30 seconds then letting it sit for 30 seconds and reading (I just read that it might be a better idea to let it sit for up to 10 minutes for a more accurate reading)
