I am new to the forum, but I have been reading pool school for the last month. My Taylor kit k-2006 came in a couple days ago and I immediately tested the water.
CYA 130 (I'm guessing bc it was past the last mark at 100). What!?!?
The results seemed correct except cya. How did it get that high when it was 46 the week before on the test from the pool store? I tested at home again this morning and took a sample to the pool store.

I know I should trust the Taylor test, but the cya reading makes no sense. I followed the instructions exactly. What could be causing such a high result? I have been using triclor tablets from Leslie's in a floater up until today, but now I took it out and plan on using bleach to chlorinate. Pool water is somewhat cloudy and has a slightly green tinge. Our area has been experiencing rain almost every day which is causing a lot of people around here issues with keeping their water clear. Another question: should I do anything special after it rains? Pool store told me to shock it with non chlorinating shock after the rain and that did clear up the water, but I want a TFP opinion.
