My old neighbor just bought a home with a pool and he I'd trying to understand how to best care for his pool. Fortunately it seems like he hired a pool service that actually understands how high CYA can be detrimental to a clear sparkly pool. My neighbor said the guy tested it and CYA was over 100 and the pool tech recommended draining and using liquid chlorine once cya is under control.
My neighbor was surprised at first but when I gave him the same advice about draining the pool, he became interested. He's on his way over and he's either going to bring over a sample of water for me to test, or he's going to borrow my CYA testing supplies.
I've read up on how you can dilute the cya test with distiller water, but could someone explain it to me like I'm a 10 year old? Do I add half tap water/half pool water to my red tipped bottle, then top it off with my cya testing solution? Do I mix it somehow in a Pyrex measuring cup? It must be simple but I'm just not getting it. Please help! He's going to be here with in hour.
