    CYA testing with Taylor K-2006

    This should be quick. Added more than enough CYA to be at 70-80ppm for my SWG. Taylor kit is reading 55ish. Should I add more CYA. I'm trying to lower my SWG setting from 80% 8 hours a day to closer to 40 or 50%. Maybe I have great eyesight, but i can see the dot very slightly at 70ppm when testing.

    How long has it been since you added CYA ? It can sometimes take up to a week to fully dissolve.

    What he said ^^^

    It's easy enough to raise CYA, but there's no easy way to remove it.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
