Hello all, it's great to be back!
I opened the above ground oval pool yesterday and added some bleach. Today I've gotten around to actually testing the water. CL-10, CC-0, PH 7.9, TA-90, CH-90 and CYA 20ish. Okay, added some acid.
I'd like my CYA to be around at least 40 here in the Rockies as our sun is brutal and isn't filtered by as much atmosphere as you all in the flat land. My question is--can I use some pucks to raise the CYA and get some chlorine benefit at the same time (2 birds one stone!) without getting in trouble, or will you yell at me? I'm trying to save $$ and trying to avoid buying 4lb of CYA and using only 2 or so this year.
Is there a way to somewhat accurately estimate how much CYA I will get with how many pucks? I'm not interested in using up all my CYA reagent on this little experiment if I have to test more than the old fashioned way, nor am I interested in having a bag of tablets left over till next year either. What do you think?
