I'm on my second round of draining partially to lower my CYA which was 95 (pool store test, BTW).
Added some chlorine and am going out to brush, test with strips, as I haven't purchased test kit yet....
Can I turn on my heater? Is there any damage to the heater from high chlorine/CYA readings, water not being balanced?
My pool AG 24' round, 52" high.
Readings (yesterday, prior to draining below return, refill, 1 gal bleach)
CYA 95 (this is down from 111 )
I've given up on the copper for now, that 'metal out' stuff is too expensive. Will wait till I get the CYA and other readings stable.
I'll post updated readings later, but would like to raise the water tempature in preparation for possible swimming, if I ever get this water figured out.... Thanks to all!
