I've been lurking here for about a month and decided to try the BBB method, and joined this forum.
Pool is perfectly clear right now and temp of 82 degrees. I have not started putting liquid bleach into the pool. I have been using granulated 1 lb bags of shock and 3" pucks in a floating duck.
Current Test Results
FC - 7.5
CC - 0
pH - 7.5
TA - 120
CH - 130
CYA - 90
Am I correct in guessing that I should try and get my CYA down, so that I won't have to keep my FC so high? As far as I know the only way to lower CYA as partial drain and re-fill. I'm on well water here, so draining the pool by 1/2 is not a good option for me. And I don't want to pay for water delivery. By garden hose and rainfall, I can only raise the water level a few inches a day. Should I start down that path?
BTW, just yesterday I took the pucks out of the pool for good and added one bag of shock because it had just rained very hard and I did not have a test kit (waiting for the delivery that came today).
Am I correct with BBB method there is no need for Chlorine pucks anymore?
What levels should I keep my eye on and re-test daily at this point?
Thanks in advance all!
