New home, new pool last year. Found TFP early on and was all BBB all summer. Worked great, got great advice. Last summer CYA was 90+, partially drained and refilled and eventually got CYA to the 60-70 mark.
Closed pool, opened this summer to clear water but huge green algae covering the bottom. Bleached the **** out of the pool the first 5 days, now clear and looking pretty good BUT I can't get a CYA reading...it's like it's less than zero. I've read that the algae can eat/breakdown CYA, so I can believe that's where it went...NOW, how do I get some back in the pool? And, do I wait to lower PH until I know what to add for CYA...everything seems to affect the other.
Thank you pool people!
PH is high at 8
FC overnight about 12 (using strips waiting for my R-0871 re-order)
