    High cya in swg and cloudy water

    If my cya is 100 and i want it to be 80, do i just drain 20% of the water? Do i figure this out by how many inches i lose while pumping out water?

    High cya in swg and cloudy water

    I agree on taking my own reading. The tester is on the way. Im just recently transitioning slowly away from dependency on the store and going into a DIY direction. However, as far as the speculation that my cya could be any random level, that’s unsettling and a little scary. The owner of this...

    High cya in swg and cloudy water

    Thank you. I will do so. One thing in dont fully understand though. Ive read here that a good cya level for a swg pool is 70-80. Mine is now 100. If i manage to drain/dillute a portion of the water to get myself to cya 80, i would have to maintain fc level at 7.5% of 80, which is 6. Isnt 6 a...

    INTEX STRAINER GRID CLOGGING..

    I have tried many ways of vacuuming this pool. The suction inlet is a strainer. This hampers any efforts to vacuuming debris with any success or consistency. You are at the mercy of how quickly the strainer grid gets clogged. Once it does, you have to try and clear that strainer and hope to get...

    INTEX STRAINER GRID CLOGGING..

    Moved from here... INTEX STRAINER GRID CLOGGING I see that this is an older comment /question. I have the same problem. I’ve tried both intex vacuums(garden hose and suction into a small net bag), as well as a standard suction vac and a ladybug vac both going right into the strainer grid. The...
