I have been reading the site and just purchased a home in Garland, TX. We have a 24,000 gallon pool and I bought the TFT100 test kit. Today is the first chance I have had to test the water aand I have the following results:
CYA over 100 (I could not get to the 100 line before I lost sight of the dot)
From reading it looks like I may have to replace my water. I also need to stop using the automatic chlorine feeder as it uses tablets. My question is, can I do anything besides changing the water? Reading tells me no as the CYA is accumulative but I figured I wuld ask. Water is very clear and no chlorine smell I can detect but swiming is out of the question right now!
One other question, mu cleaner pump will not come on by itself. It is tied to the pool pump through the timer. When the timer comes on so does the cleaner pump. I can't manually turn it on. When freeze protection comes on, the cleaner pump does not come on but will turn on manually. Is this proper operation?
Thanks in advance,
