Real question(s) after the second set of dashes
Hi, I'm not a new pool owner, but seem to have stumbled through the last 10 years without you guys with no insoluble problems. I think it was mostly luck.
I've been spending some time reading here and believe I now understand the relationship between CYA and chlorine somewhat, or at least the cause and effect on normal and shock chlorine levels due to the amount of CYA present.
The pool I have been maintaining will likely be filled in in 2 more seasons and I have a boatload of supplies so I'm not likely to convert to BBB now, though I likely would have at an earlier date.
HTH Super Select Shock Treatment contains 56.44% Calcium Hypo and 43.56 other ingredients. I gather that some of those other ingredients are CYA. Does anyone have an estimate on how much CYA is in there? Could I possibly even determine this by dissolving some in water and testing the water?
