Hi everyone. I'm hoping you can give me some guidance on my levels.
Live in New Jersey
Pool is 22,000 Gallons
Hayward DE filter
Typically use puck chlorine system, but switched to BBB recently.
130 Cal Hardness
I was out of town for a few weeks and didn't have anyone maintain pool...now levels are all messed up. Water is nice and clear, and I know I need to dump a couple of gallons of chlorine immediately to raise FC, but I am very concerned about the high CYA. For most of the summer it was up to about 80, and I didn't mind that. Now I think I might need to replace water. According to pool calculator, about 75%. Is this true? Do I have any other alternatives?
I am concerned about replacing this much water and possibly damaging the liner.
Also, we live in a suburban neighborhood, and our pool backwash hose runs along the side of the house to the front yard. The hose terminates near the public sidewalk, not a sewer. It would completely flood the sidewalk. Isn't this illegal? Do I need to reroute the hose to the public sewer?
Any help would be appreciated!
