I am a brand new pool owner and learning the ropes right now. I am located in Phoenix, AZ. I have read Pool School a few times and am going to order a TF-100 kit.
In the mean time I have been going to my local pool store to get the water tested (according to everything I've read here, this is a bad idea).
The CYA levels are above 100. Around 120. I mentioned this to the pool store, but they said here in Phoenix that CYA is always going to be higher compared to the rest of the country and not to worry.
Can anyone confirm this is correct? I am especially interested to hear from other Phoenix residents.
