    Tiles coming off the coping - NJ Coping/Tile company recommendation too?

    I have quite a few tiles that came off the but I'm hoping if we just replace all the tiles with waterproofing it won't be a major huge deal (as compared to also replacing the entire coping)

    Adding CYA

    Also, I have 2 skimmers. If I go with a sock is it OK to add to both at same time or better to only add to one?

    Adding CYA

    Moved from here. I need to add about 10 lbs of CYA (im at 0). Would i just pour it all in skimmer slowly and then let it run straight for a few days? Or can i let pump go off at night?

    Tiles coming off the coping - NJ Coping/Tile company recommendation too?

    We are living in our house 2 years and before we moved in we had the pool inspected by a local company (Preferred Pool Inspections).

    Do i need to regularly backwash?

    My pool guy (who i use just for opening and closing) said i do not. I keep an eye on the pressure all summer and it is always between 15 and 20. Assuming it stays there is there any reason to backwash?

    CYA is <20 (looks like less than 10)

    Im about 25 minutes away. Based on above i have to assume i am at 0 PPM since i saw the black dot with a full cylinder. so id need 2.5 lbs for 25,000. I am somewhere between 25,000 and 30,000 based on my calculations (20x40) ranging from about 3 feet to about 6+ feet. I'd rather be safe and...

    CYA is <20 (looks like less than 10)

    So over the winter i had to drain my pool down twice (between closing and the 2 drainings, as well as the vacuum of leaves probably took out close to 4 feet). As a result my chlorine is flying out and my CYA test filled up the cylinder today and was still showing a visible black dot. I assume i...

    FC consumed, but no CC

    if i recall correctly, cc only goes up when it doesn't break down. You will always see FC fluctuating but want CC to be 0
