I knew nothing about pool chemistry b4 buying this pool. Upon install I quickly started reading all I could about testing and trying to "crash course" on water chem. I soon found this site and started water maintenance but now know I did a few things out of order such as waiting about a week b4 I figured out about cya and added my sock full of cya which is almost completely dissolved. I ordered the TC-100 kit and got it (super fast) today. I have been having to add around 4 cups of bleach daily which is almost totally gone after a day of sunshine but I suspect some of that to the low cya levels. But based on these test results I am thinking I need to shock due to the cc level of 1. The water is crystal clear, feels good and I just replaced the filter for the first time. I am just a little confused on the shock level since reading that it relates to cya level which is low but rising. What would be my target shock level? Thanks for this site keeping my water as good as it is so far and future advise.
4pm test results:
CYA: 15 and rising
