Thanks again for all the good information on the board. It has helped tremendously on the pools I take care of.
Quick question about CYA levels.
The pools look great, finally getting all the levels in proper areas but I notice that it is recommended to keep CYA levels at 60-70 for saltwater pools.
Right now the levels are 35-40.
Free chlorine level range between 5-6 but never really go down, in fact I have the SWG's turned down to 15% and it still is tough to keep the chlorine levels down.
Part of this, is because the pools have automatic covers that are closed whenever the pools are not being used. The pools get used maybe 2-3 times a week, so burn off of chlorine is pretty minimal.
My question is is it necessary to get the CYA level up to 60? I can only imagine that at that level it will be even harder to keep the chlorine level down as it won't burn out a lot.
I also understand that every pool is different. At this time the pumps have been adjusted to keep them running enough to keep the pools clean and sparkly but short enough to not keep the SWG's running even more.
The pools are 11,000 gallon with goldline controls and t-15 cells.
Again thank you for the valuable resources and information from everyone.
