    help! kid pooped in pool.

    I just finished cleaning and testing my pool....

    hope i remember right...its been an hour or so but...

    FC 3.5
    TA 70
    CYA 30
    pH 7.5


    I have no idea why my cya is so low....i just added some last week to get it up to proper levels and i was shocked to see it at 30....we've had rain every day this week, is that causing it?

    anywho, the mess is being cleaned out right now and i want to get the shock process started...supposed to have company over tomorrow for a nice swim lol

    seeing that my CYA is low what is my target shock level? still 24? I have a saltwater generator

    Your shock value is only 12 for cya 30. But shock it at whatever level you added cya for.

    because of my current CYA level?

    Certainly no more than two hours during daylight hours.
