New pool owner here...(2 months old, filled June 28th)....I am curious what CYA level folks in North Texas are using.
MY CYA is 40. Pool looks great but I am putting in 70-90 ozs of 8.25% bleach each day. I am losing about 2 - 3.0 ppm per day with zero bather load since Monday. I did an OCLT earlier this week and showed a 1.0 drop over night and CC is always .5 or less so I don't think I have any major organics. I am going to do another OCLT tonight to make sure it doesn't need slamming. Assuming I pass the OCLT again, I am wondering if I need to bump up my CYA to bring down my daily FC loss. Seem like a lot to be dumping in daily. My pool starts getting sun at 9am and by 10 its in full sun. Starts getting shade at about 6pm and gradually gets more shade until sundown. Thoughts?
Latest test from last night before I added bleach and MA
CYA - 40
FC - 4.5
CC - 0.5
pH - 7.6
TA - 80
CH - 270
