Thread: To raise cya or not?

    To raise cya or not?

    My cya is at 60 right now. Started out at 20 this spring from draining pool water over the winter and have slowly been raising in 3 pounds of cya at a time. My water is perfect right now. Pump run time is as follows with a ecostar pump:

    4am-11am 1100 watts
    12pm-3pm 1500 watts
    4-4:45 2100 watts
    5:30-6 3000 watts

    My aqua logic is SWG is set at 25% and pool is around 19000 gallons.

    Pool gets full sun for 11-12 hours.

    Should I add another 3 pounds to bring my cya up to 80? Will I be able to lower my percentage on my SWG if I do?

    Thanks

    I would say 70 to 80 for a SWG with alot of sun.

    Ok thanks. I know pool school says that is the preferred range but didn't know if I needed to being everything seems fine at 60.

    If everything is ok leave it alone. How is your FC consumption ?

    It stays in the 4-5 range. Usually check around 7-7:30 at night and it is always in that range with CC at 0.

    Raising it would likely allow you to lower the % output a bit, possibly extending the cells life some.
