I'm a new pool owner. We have an inground 16x32 pool with a hayward sand filter.
I have been reading in pool school and purchased the Taylor test kit, 2006. All is going well, and my numbers are all looking good. But, my CYA level is 0. The previous owners left some trichlor, so I have that in a floating chlorinator, thinking that would incease the CYA while adding chlorine. I have been adding bleach, however to maintain my chlorine levels. I've been looking at the CYA chlorine chart, and I can't help but wonder if CYA is worth adding? If you need higher FC levels the higher your CYA, why add it at all? If yes, will using the trichlor increase my CYA fast enough, or should I add dry stabilizer?
Thanks for any input!
