I get lots of debris in my pool from all of the surrounding trees and it gets very hot in my area, up to 110 during the hot summer days....My pool is about 27,000 gallons, and in ground, plaster. I have a test kit, though sometimes I do not have enough time to test the chlorine levels before or even after work. I took out my floater with the pucks because the CYA levels of my pool are too high. With the high CYA level, I need lots of chlorine.
1. I've been adding about a half a bottle of chlorine from Home Depot about every two days without checking the levels. Are there any issues with doing this? Worst case scenario, if my chlorine was a bit too high, which I do not think it is with my CYA levels, what could happen?
2. If I'm gone for work for a few days, I'm thinking of just putting my floater with the pucks back in, even though my CYA is already too high. I don't want to, though I can't think of any other options. Since my water is already bad with high CYA, does it make a difference at this point?
Thanks in advance!
