I have been using Leslie's granular chlorine since the pool was new but no have to put too much in w/respect to CYA levels. I am now using liquid chlorine which is actually Sodium Hypochlorite. Will the CYA already in the pool at a high level protect the chlorine and as a result will have high bound up chlorine but diminish as backwashing and evaporation reduce the CYA levels closer to normal? This would be fine if as long as the chlorine doesn't get consumed by some other means but slowly is released into the pool as a algae killer.
I also put some sodium carbonate into the pool to raise the PH but now have cloudy white/grey water. The sand filter does not seem to work well in filtering this out. Will a blue clarifier work on this?
