I need to add CYA to my pool. I've read about both methods - hanging a sock in front of a return, or mixing it in a bucket of water and adding it to the skimmer basket.
1) When they say to add it to the basket, is this the skimmer basket by the side of the pool, or the basket next to the sand filter?
2) Do I need to run the pump continuously with either of these methods? Or can I leave the pump on its regular 12 hrs/day setting?
3) Will raising CYA bind the FC that's currently in the pool? Do I need to turn up my SWG output % while I'm adding the CYA, to be safe?
4) Is 80 a good goal for CYA in my salt pool, or should I start lower around 60? The pool looks great right now despite the low CYA level, so I don't want to risk messing up the other levels.
CYA 20 or 30
