My pool is two months old and Ive been using trichlor pucks to raise my CYA levels. My CYA is at 50 now, and I'm wondering how much higher I should let it go. My FC these last few days gas been happy and stable at 6.0. I've been using bioguard silk tabs in a rainbow inline chlorinatior on full blast for the last two months but still supplementing with Clorox to keep FC up. We do have a high bather load (3 of my own kids swimming daily plus various friends and neighbors as well), but I think the sun was chewing up most of my chlorine. I have full sun from 10am-7pm every day. I must admit I'm loving that my FC is finally stable. I'm fastidious with my pool...brush and vacuum weekly, clean skimmers weekly, check chemicals daily, and adjust as needed. My pool is sparkly and beautiful! I don't want to mess anything up, so how high should I allow my CYA to go?
Here is the whole picture from today's test:
