    Raising CYA levels

    My CYA is at 20 and I am finding that I am losing a lot of chlorine during the day. About 4 to 5 ppm. I would like to get my CYA up to around 40. Which type of stabilizer should I use, liquid or dry and what is a good brand to use ? Thanks

    What size to use ?

    I'm looking to convert my pool to SWG. I have a 20,000 gal I.G. that gets sun all day. I'm debating over brands and what size to get. Some say 1.5x to 2x is sufficient where others say 2x to 3x. Any ideas on a brand and a size ? I like the Circupool RJ series. Thanks
