After 12 years of fighting our pool I finally stumbled onto the TFP site. THANK YOU! Now I've got a real test kit and I'm starting to already see results. The 28' above ground cess pool I had has been replaced by the beginnings of what may actually be a swimming pool!
So, here's the question. I've got things more or less on the road to being balanced. Currently my numbers are all at t low end of what my Taylor test kit tells me should be my goal levels.Thing is I have zero CYA. I didn't know anything about stabilizer before and the pool is basically full of snow melt water, pretty soft and with no residual CYA. So I got what was available locally and added 1 3/4 lbs of what is supposed to be 100% CYA. Did that yesterday and still have a zero reading. I cannot find any advice on how much stabilizer I should be adding to about 19K gal of water to get my level up where I want it. I've read the CYA readings can take a while to come up, but I;m not sure if I should add more or what.
Any advice will be gratefully appreciated.
