I have been learning a lot from reading this site, and am now responsible for pool upkeep (gotten rid of the pool care guy).
First, all important test results from my Taylor K-2006:
CYA: Was ~20 on Saturday. Added some cyanuric acid to bring the level up to 30, and will test it again in a day or two.
Now here are my questions for the experts:
1. I am running low on CYA test reagent. Where do you get replacement reagents for Taylor kit? When I am ordering, I will as well order some for Chlorine as well.
2. I am losing about 4-6 ppm FC in a day. The pool is under direct sunlight most of the day, and temps here are almost 100oF. My last OCLT indicated less than 1 ppm loss. I am using liquid bleach to maintain the chlorine levels. Is this much chlorine loss normal? If yes, what can be done to reduce this use, if anything?
3. Just curious, why it needs almost a week for CYA to register on the tests? When I added cyanuric acid last time, it wdissolved in about 3-5 hours.
That's it for now..but I am sure more questions will be coming
