Hey all! DW and I have been having good luck with our above ground beauty since it was installed last spring but... I"m concerned with the CYA level. When I opened the pool this spring I shocked it with a couple of pounds of powdered shock and some Calcium as per the pool store. I also added 8 oz of algaecide in mid-June on 2 different weekends but nothing since June 14th.
The CYA level has been slooooowly rising over the last month and a half.
In late June I used one puck each week for 2 weekends when we were away but I don't use them regularly.
I add 1.5 qts of liquid chlorine every other night.
Pool is spotless and clear.
Is there anything else that would cause CYA to keep rising?
Any help is much appreciated!
