Opened my pool for the first time after buying my house with pool late last year.
I was very disappointed today when I did the CYA and the water was only halfway to the 100 mark and I already couldn't see the dot.
I finally had to dilute the sample to 1 part pool water/ 3 parts tap water and got a result of 70ppm. (So 280ppm CYA).
This is the result of very heavy puck usage.
so after a minor come-apart I lined the pump up to the main drain and pumped out about 2.5 feet.
I'm afraid to pump out more and have to buy a new liner.
Pool math says I need to change 82% of the water.
This is going to take forever only changing a few feet at a time with a hose.
Yesterday it took almost 15 hours to add 1.5 ft.
Just wanted to let you all know what's going on....
Photobucket doesn't seem to be working properly so I can't share the picture I took
