I would like to start by saying thank all of you for all your help and thank you for letting me join this awesome community.
So me and my wife bought this house 6 months ago and it came with our first pool. After listening to leslies for 6 months and getting no where is when I found this site and have not been back to leslies. The previous owner was using tri chlor pucks and di chlor shock so I naturally started using the same method. I have recently switched to the bbb and testing myself. As of now my pool is clean and clear but I know I have issues with my ch and cya and I know the only sure way to lower them is to drain and fill. I was hoping that with the insane evaporation (about an inch a day during summer months) I could just let it evaporate and refill to lower cya and ch or am I just crazy to try and maintain a pool with that high of levels. I have also read testing ph above 10ppm fc is inaccurate but does that hold true with high cya ?
Thank you all again for you have turned my nightmare of a first pool experience into a great first pool experience.
