My problem is that 1.5 years ago I had the same problem with CYA. I drained the pool and got it fixed. I always bought 65% non stabilized chlorine after that problem. Now the pool is green and I just added 9 lbs of chlorine and no change. Checked the CYA and was amazed that it was above 100. I think the problem is I live in Costa Rica and there is no consumer protection so I think they are selling trichlor. Is there anyway I can test the product when I buy it to make sure it is not trichlor? I just emptied my pool and will spend $400-$500 to refill it. I have a SWG so I have not been checking the CYA since I don't use stabilized chlorine.
Thanks for any help
