SO, Ive owned and maintained our pool the way the pool store has told me for 6 years..I know
I took a sample to the pool store a few weeks ago when my water was "milky" and they had me put in 5 bags of 73% calcium hypo-chlorite...2 days later another 5 bags, and then 3 days later another 3. I was then advised to put in 5lbs of stabelizer/conditioner. Since then my PH has been drifting down, ive been adding borax or washing soda to keep it up. My FC was through the roof for weeks until I finally added 2.5lbs of Sodium thiosulfate to bring it down. I wasnt adding any chlorine at all from the time they had me shock with 13 bags of cal hypo. SO glad i found this site to get away from the pool place. I have now invested in the Taylor K 2006 and got my first set of results. I am concerned about my CYA being so high, and why they would have had me add the stabelizer....
CYA 100 (I believe it is even higher then this)
