I switched from 3" tablets last year due to high CYA levels. I switched to Calcium Hypochlorite (shock) that results in keeping the algae at bay but the calcium, I assume clouds the pool. This year I have switched to liquid chlorine (for about 1 month now) but because of the high CYA levels, I have been having a problem keeping the chlorine levels constant.
1) is it the calcium causing the cloudiness (because pre-mixing it never results in a clear additive.
2) My 25,000 gallon pool/100 gallon attached hot tub is taking a gallon a day of liquid, 10% Sodium Hypochlorite
3) does TFP believe in algaecide and/or NoPhos products?
Until the water flows from the skies again, I do not want to dump half of the pool water and have Jerry Brown showing up at my door with a big fine!
The CYA level is at about 90
All other chemical numbers are in their normal range
I have found 10% KemTek 2 gallon packs on sale at Orchard Supply Hardware for $4.95, a great price.
Chemistry is under control using high amounts of Chlorine and covering the pool day and night. The temp has risen to 86°F
