My pool was just emptied, acid washed and refilled. I can now see my Diamond Brite instead of white "cream"! It looks great. I'm tweaking the chemistry and have been testing/adjusting daily to get to the sweet spot. I'm rather puzzled this morning. Yesterday, my CYA was 30. I put a gallon of liquid conditioner in the pool yesterday afternoon and ran the pump all night. This morning, my CYA is still 30. I know that with solid CYA, it can take a week. I've not experienced this with liquid CYA. Here's my numbers this morning:
Borates: 0 (haven't added yet)
Explanation or advice is appreciated! Of course, my concern is adding more and then discovering I have too much CYA.
