I finally got all my new equipment installed (Intelliflo VS, EasyTouch 8, Clean and Clear 420, IntellipH, IC-40, Intellibrite pool and spa light). I drained the pool due to the lights. Upon start up, I added liquid Chlorine, acid, salt, and Conditioner. This was last Sunday. I added enough CYA to bring it up to 60. I didn't want to go straight to 70-80 in case of an overshoot. Today, a week later, I'm still basically showing 0 CYA.
FC - 4
CC - 0
pH - 7.8
TA - 140
Salt - 3350
CYA - 0!!!!!!
I have the salt cell set to 60%. IntellipH is set to 1% until i get the TA down. The pump runs 23 hours a day. The water has never been clearer (which I account to the new filter with pump on low speed (1350 RPM).
The conditioner bought from Home Depot is "Pool Time." The last time I had issue with bad CYA was the stuff from Wal-Mart. Is it possible I've been duped by not getting Leslie's conditioner, again. I measured a few days ago expecting something to show up with a result of 0. So, I used a new bottle of reagent and tested again. Today I only tested once the older reagent. Either way, I'm coming up with 0. The conditioner was poured into the skimmer with a skimmer sock. I think I added the salt at about the same time.
