Hi I am new to taking care of our salt water pool and can not stabilize the cya level. When converting to salt water last season the pool company did not put any cya in and we had algae all summer. This season started off again with high phosphate levels, zero chlorine and algae.After finding this great site I learned about cya and salt water pools. Pool size is 42500 gallons, plaster . I put in 20 lbs of cya last month and reached 45 ppm. After two heat waves pool was cloudy and water tested 26 ppm. I did not drain any water from pool.
Put in 10 lbs last week and went to 28 ppm. Pool store said pool was haunted! I would really appreciate any insights
