    Quick CYA and Pool Calculator Question

    I agree with the above, check before adding any CYA to it. I used pucks in my pool the year before I found this site, and my CYA was way above what it should have been. I think my CYA was around 100 at that time. I just lived with it until I drained alot of the water out in the fall for...

    to shock or not to shock that is the question

    Thanks dmanb, I was thinking the same thing. Last year I opened and it was cloudy so I shocked it and it took a week for the TC to come down low enough to swim in it. I figured I'd try something different this year and see if I could just leave it and do an overnight FC test on it. There is a...

    Liquidator adds Cl even when control valve is off?

    Hi John, Thanks for the quick reply, I have both check valves on each side and did modify it to the 3/8" line too. It must be because it is cooler here still (in the 60's and 75 is few and far between this year so far, its usually close to 80 this time of year, so much for global...
