I would like to thank all of you for your previous help. On your recommendation, I did buy the Taylor test kit, followed your instructions on shocking, got rid of my algae swamp and now my pool is now crystal clear!
Luckily, my pool is pretty small, so I was able to get enough chlorine into it without breaking the bank. Thanks again
My readings are:
FC - 8 (I'll add more tonight)
CC - .5
pH - 7.4
CH - 550
CYA - 200 (using the dilution method)
It will be about 2 more weeks before we are able to drain and refill the pool due to the high CYA.
This is where I'm a little confused.......
The Taylor booklet talks about a CYA factor to be used in calculating the TA if the CYA is high.
With the test kit, my TA is 130. If I use the equation that they recommend, my TA would be 70. This does make a difference in my CSI being balanced.
Would I be correct in using the TA of 70?
