Hello again wonderful people of TFP!
I have a question regarding my daily chlorine use & CYA level.
Back on July 8th I raised my CYA from 30 to 45. Prior to July 8th I was adding around 44oz of 12.5% daily on a consistent basis.
Since raising the CYA to 45,(I say 45 because it's exactly halfway from 40 to 50) I am adding 77oz daily.
It has definitely been hotter since July 8th around here, but shouldn't I be using less chlorine daily with a higher CYA? This was my only intention when raising the CYA.
Since I know you like numbers, here they are from my usual evening testing.(Last night)
CYA 45 (although I have been using 50 for my CL level)
I target 6 CL and test an hour after adding, to make sure my pool size, chlorine % and math are correct. I don't like the CL dropping as low as it is which is another reason(more important reason might I add) for thinking I should raise the CYA more.
Thanks again for all your help, just being here & reading everyone else's threads and your answers has been a tremendous blessing for this first time pool owner! You Rock!!
P.S. Yes, my water is crystal clear!
