I'm having a hard time with a CYA issue. I think the PB overstabilized the pool before starting up my SWG about a week ago and now the CYA level is off the chart.
The TF test kit won't measure it, so I got a Taylor strip test and it reports close to the 150 range. I know it should be down to 100 and preferably closer to 80. I'm also still dialing in the SWG and the FC level is slowly getting where I want it. It was at 8.5 then 12 now it's down to about 6.5.
I asked the PB about the CYA level and he said it should be OK because for some reason the SWG pools seem to use the CYA and they go down or stabilize over time. Everything I've read says the pool needs to be drained by about 33% (an 18,000 gallon pool) to get to a proper level.
I haven't given the PB final payment yet because there are still a few loose ends he's working on. Should I have him drain and fill the pool so the CYA level goes down, or just wait it out and see if he's right?
