Hi everybody. Hope there's some math and chem wizards out there who can help. I have a 16'x48" AGP, but this year it seems like i can't get the chlorine to stay in the pool, so my buddy gave me two HTH 3" tablets that have CYA in it (the container he took them out of had an orange lid).
I know the container says that size tablet is for 10,000 gallons, and i think mine is between 5-6k gallons. So i'm wondering in theory, how many of those 3" tablets would get me to the right CYA levels before i can switch back to the non-CYA ones.
I know there's a lot of factors that affect CYA, but i'm just wondering in theory here. He only gave me two tablets because neither of us were sure how to proceed, but we figured those would at least put some CYA in the pool to help. Wanted to put the first one in tonight, but wanted to get some help here first before i drop it in.
