    Which SWG to buy?

    I have to run my cell at 80% for 20 hours a day. This maintains around 5 ppm of FC. Pool is 16k gallons.

    main drain plumbing?

    Near my pump there’s a candy cane shaped pvc pipe that the PB told me was a over flow pipe. But christ, it’s about 18” above the pool water level. Not sure what it’s going to do. What do you mean by “unblockable” drain?

    increase CC with rain?

    Will lots of rain cause you to have CC's? Just saw that I have .5 of CC. I know thats acceptable, but Im wondering if this is the beginning of algae since we got about 6" of rain on Sat and Sun. My FC is hovering around 6.

    Power outage

    Summer time is here and also bad storms and hurricanes for us in Florida. When the power goes out is your chlorine level the most important chemical to maintain?

    TF 100 CYA

    It appear the little dropper for the CYA test takes 15ml of water and 14ml of cyanuric acid. can you cut these amounts down equally, 7.5 & 7 respectively? Based on this amount, it should give a CYA reading of atleast 30 reason I ask is I’m almost through my entire bottle of acid for cya testing.

    Frog Remedies?

    Will the FC keep the eggs from hatching or kill them once they do hatch?

    Frog Remedies?

    Cya is 70. I like to keep my Fc on the high side because my daughter and her friends will swim for hours and not get out if you know what I mean
