    How are these numbers looking? I'm high salt, low CYA, high chlorine, hmmm..

    CL 5.5
    CC 0
    PH 7.4
    TA 90
    CH 350
    CYA 40
    Salt 4200
    Borate 50
    CSI -.43
    I raised TA using Baking soda, and that seemed to get my CH up there beyond where I feel I should be.

    Regarding chlorine, I have my SWG set at 20% and it's a struggle to keep it down. It's almost always at 6, probably to do with high salt, plus the SWG runs when the solar water panels are activated. Either way, my CYA is low. Do I need to raise my CYA?

    Or should I leave well enough alone. Dilution is not really and option, due to water restrictions and our drought here in California. Swim season is just beginning so not a lot of splash out.

    I tested using my new K-2006 kit.

    Thanks in advance..

    Since you have a SWG, yes you need to raise Cya to 70-80.

    Aside from CYA, everything looks fairly good. Raise the CYA up, and turn down the SWG percentage and things should come out just right.
