    CYA readings

    When you add CYA to the pool I understand it takes up to a week to show up when testing. But is it present and doing its job when it does not show up or is the reading correct.
    1) The size of your pool in gallons 4440.
    2) The type filter you have is an Intex 2500 gph and it has a re-useable fabric filter
    3) If your pool is an AG (above ground)
    4) Intex 15 by 48 metal frame.
    5) If you know, tell us the size pump 2500gph and the size (flow rate) of your filter.

    Re: CYA readings

    When its dissolved its working and protecting chlorine from the sun. It takes a few days for the test to accurately work, so on the safe side we suggest a week. At times I get the readings I was expecting a day after adding the stabilizer..... Other times it takes 3-4.

    If its dissolved its working....

    Re: CYA readings

    Thanks its been 5 days and I thought it would be higher by now. Maybe I measured incorrectly. I'll give a few more days. The only reason I even questioned it was I lost a lot of chlorine yesterday and today. Very hot and sunny. Just over-reacting I guess.

    That does seem high....but if your heat was as bad as ours it's possible. When in doubt try the OCLT. Eliminate the sun and see if there's anything else consuming your chlorine.
