    Test Results using my test kit.

    Hello,

    Just finished up testing my pool. The water is very clear.
    I believe I need to raise my CYA a bit but wanted to get opinions from more knowledgeable folks first.

    Thanks!

    Greta numbers! Yes since your pool is clear and maintaining FC with 0 CC and you have a SWG you want to raise your CYA to 70-80 range.

    Use pool math to calculate how much Stablizer you need. Add it to a sock and set it in top of a skimmer or ties it in front of the return jet. Leave pump running until it disolves. You can speed the process by queezing the sock. Once it is disolves remove the sock and test CYA in one week.

    How long are you running the pump and SWG?

    The reason I ask is because those numbers look good. Raising CYA might allow you to turn down the SWG% or the pump run time. On the other hand, if you're doing that well with only 4 hours pump and 50% SWG, why mess with success?

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    I have it currently set to run from 7:30am to 7:00pm @ 40%.

    I live in the country with a big hay field surrounding my house.
    My thinking may be warped but I like running the pump during the daylight hours to keep bugs/grasshoppers/crickets and blown hay particles etc.... gathered up in the skimmers.

    Thanks!

    That is what I do, run my pump on 1100rpm (150w) a lot to skim all the tree stuff of the surface before it sinks. My SWG is on a separate timer.
