    $$ Daily bleach consumption $$

    I use 10% chlorinated liquid purchased from Lowe's with good results. Test hold true after adding.
    My daily cost of adding it is around $1.29 daily (adding around 5 cups daily)
    I'm losing about 2 to 3 ppm daily with only 0.5-1ppm lose overnight. CYA around 30-35. Thinking about bumping up CYA to around 40-45 to get better protection on FC. Water is crystal clear. What do you think?

    FC-3
    CC-0.5
    PH-7.6
    TA-100
    CH-250
    CYA-30-35
    BORATE-45
    TEMP-84

    Rick, I'm near San Antonio and I just started bumping my CYA up from 30 to closeer to 50 just because of the glaring sunlight. My pool is in the open all day long and takes a beating, so I wanted a little more sunscreen (CYA) to protect my chlorine.

    Yep, raise that CYA. Every two 3" trichlor pucks you add will raise CYA by about 5. That's the easiest way to do it unless you have some stabilizer laying around.

    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!

    Yeah, I get about 9 hours sunlight on pool daily now and its up around 90 degrees here in Dallas area. Will try pucks since I don't have any stabilizer on hand. Thanks
