Just a few days ago I decided to try the BBB method. After adding the recommended amounts of borax, baking soda and bleach my levels are now within the appropriate ranges.
However, my CYA level reads as 80ppm. I know it should be 30-50 ppm. We are nearing the end of the pool season here in CT with a month or less to go and I don't know if I should even worry about it. Next summer we are going to completely drain our pool and refill it. Should I just ignore this? I don't even understand what CYA is.
Lastly, according to my test kit I have zero hardness in my pool. Is that a bad thing?
Thank you in advance to anyone who can help educate me!
