My new K-2006 kit should be here tomorrow and I will soon have more specifics, but this is somewhat a general question anyway.
The pool with the house we purchased has been using chlorine pucks placed under the strainer baskets weekly for at least 2-3 years. When I had them test CYA they said it was about 90. Since that's just a little high do I need to worry about bringing it down before completing the conversion? Otherwise, I was thinking I'd just adjust the desired FC levels and with no more pucks in use adding to the CYA it would slowly drop anyway? I forgot the rest of the results I had them take, other than most were all within, or at least close, to what's listed in the sticky and in pool school.
Related question is I'm also now ready to convert. Everything is now running on my new pumps, filter, and even a new pad. I HAD intended to time it for just before the pool service came out and would add more pucks but just tell them to stop doing that, then turn on the SWG and monitor daily, add bleach as needed and keep adjusting. Tired of the weekly major swings in chlorine as well anyway. But, we now suddenly have company coming to visit for a week in a couple of days (see what happens when you move to Florida). With a sudden extra bather load would it make ANY sense to just get the SWG running, even if at a low level to help a little with the extra load? Still watch it daily to be sure nothing TOO high, but basically just complement the pucks? LOL, one of the visitors is a 3 year old, so there will for sure be some extra bio-load there!!!
Otherwise, with weekly addition of pucks and the pool service basically guessing, even by their own test FC fluctuates from as low as 3PPM to as high as 12 !!!! I didn't like the 12 at all, and the response was "All's good, commercial pools go much higher!". Except I don't have a commercial pool
