    what should be my target cya?

    UPSTATE SOUTH CAROLINA WATER TEMPS HOLDING AROUND 88 - 90
    LOSING 3ppm FC daily. Seems like more than last year. Have had to add a little water several times this season. What should my target CYA be?
    Thanks in advance

    Hello Cosmic! The CYA range for a non-SWG pool is 30-50. So if you believe your water is otherwise healthy, and by that I mean no excessive loss of FC, OCLT and water clarity okay, then sure, many people will go up slightly on their CYA - maybe 40 or 50. In my region, I just bumped mine up as well.

    Also keep in mind that factors such as pool size and amount of activity can justify a loss of 3 ppm. Hope that helps.

    3ppm is not a lot. But, nothing wrong with raising CYA another 10ish.
