I'm having some balancing trouble...could use some help!
Did my tf-100 testing this morning:
Free chlorine -1.5ppm
Combined chloramines -0
CYA - 30ppm
I'm low on my cya, which might explain why running the SWCG at 60% for the last week hasn't brought up my chlorine level. I've just upped it to 70%. It's a brand new pool with a hayward turbo cell T-cell-15. And being in central, fl, it's plenty sunny. So, I figure the chlorine is just burning off(?)
As such, I've just added less than a pound of stabilizer slowly into the skimmer (but this amount is a guess; pouring it out of a bag. What's a better way to measure this stuff out?!?). Pool math called for like 9lbs...which I think is too much to add at one go.
Is my problem the CYA, or am I missing something else? Any other input regarding my chemical levels?
Also, can you add different chemicals at the same time? Any reason to avoid doing this? e.g. Adding cya and sodium bicarb together?
Thanks ahead of time!!
