I have my pool finally opened and was able to do some test results. Just a FYI - I have some of Leslie's Conditioner in a sock in front of one of my returns. I put it out there this morning and it already seems like half is gone.
With that being said here are my results:
CYA: >20 ( it went all the way to the top before I was unable to see the black dot.
Water temp: 70
I didn't bother with CH since I have a vinyl pool, but I can do a test if it would help.
There were some chemicals already here from the previous owners although I bought the conditioner myself. There is Leslie's Alkalinity UP ( 14 pound tub I believe ) Those wonderful 1 inch tablets, Pool Perfect + PHOS Free, small tub of Leslie's Soda Ash.
I haven't bothered with adding chlorine since the CYA is so low. I figured it would be a waste. Could it be that since CYA in most cases can take up a week to register on a test that I just need to wait until I get proper readings? I don't want to keep wasting the reagent testing it. Everyone keeps wanting to know when they can swim, is it safe now? My water is clear and blue...I'm actually surprised I'm not seeing algae since my FC is so low and the water temp is high.
